DirecTV quietly updates iPad app, HR34 DVR

DIRECTV updates iPad app, HR34 DVR with tktkt

DirecTV has quietly updated both its iPad app and HR34 DVR with a variety of new features for Satellite-loving customers. The application will now resume from where you left off, comes with a much improved search function and best of all, a direct line into the company's support forums. Meanwhile, the HR34 swallowed a software package that included Pandora, a YouTube landing page and more readable closed captions amongst a raft of other nips and tucks. The former will be available through the app store, while the latter should have arrived on your box overnight, well before you start on that CSI marathon.

  1. Since there haven’t been any updates in 4 months, I can see why there were so many released with these updates. First of all the resume button on the iPad is pure genius. You can only stream live channels in the house, so now if I am right you can stop it and then resume it where you left when you come home, pure genius! The HR34 is a nifty receiver, other then I think 200 hours of recording time isn’t nearly enough for all the tuners it has in it, although that might explain why they added Pandora and YouTube to it, to give you something to listen to and something else to watch instead of recording more shows. I remember when Dish released Pandora back in April; they also doubled the hard drive recording time on the Hopper to 500 hours of HD recording, 60% more than the HR34. That space comes in handy since I work nights at Dish, I can record all the shows I want, watch them when I want and not worry about the hard drive filling up.
