For now you can just browse to m.directv.com and schedule a recording. It's not the same as the iPhone app. I too hope they develop an app for Android.

There is an app called "TV.com", but be forewarned... it doesn't play full length shows. (not as far as I can tell anyway.) It plays 3 minute clips, just like Vcast does.

I suggest that DTV/android users contact their customer service and reply on the post in their forums , let them know that there are a lot of androids users out there

No it does not allow you to watch tv. Maybe they were thinking of slingbox app. I don't see an equivalent app in market place. I have the superfan app, but that's for sunday ticket subscribers only.

Never heard of an iphone app for directv that lets you watch tv, besides the Superfan of course. Only app Directv has is for checking schedules and working your DVR, it never let you watch anything.

To watch tv you need a sling box. I have no idea if it works with the droid.

Yes I get this error a fair amount of time. I think it happens when the connection isn't strong enough. Just keep trying, and eventually it should connect.

Last night I found a DirecTV app in the market. Looks like it was just added. Has been working well for me so far.

Are there any fixes scheduled for the DirecTv application for the EVO? I installed in, and get errors when it tries to record a show. The app worked perfectly on my Palm Pre.

I have the Direct TV app for my droid. I also have whole-home DVR. When I schedule a show to watch from my droid, it records and shows up on all my receivers except I can only watch it on my main DVR. Anyone else have these issues with whole-home DVR? Thanks.

That is very strange. I also have whole-home DVR and have no problems watching Droid recorded programs from and receiver. If you can see it from a receiver, you should be able to watch it. If this is not true, then contact DIRECTV to fix the connection.

I had been using this app for several months, but recently it is erroring out. "Technical difficulties, please try again"

Anybody else see this and know of a correction ?

Cool Nicole says...

I have an app on my Android where I can not only control my TV but I can also watch my TV. I'm subscribed to DISH Network and all the programming I pay for at home I can stream live wherever I'm at as long as there's high-speed internet. I work in DISH's tech support and I have a busy life with 3 kids included, so trust me when I'm ecstatic to be anywhere and relax like I'm at home on the couch.

Try Orb Live. If you have a tv tuner in your pc you can monitor it from your phone. It also monitors all your music, photos, and documents. The live TV works better on the web site log in (full screen) than on the mobile app.
