1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    The latest mobile applications from DIRECTV will soon be available in their respective markets and available for download directly to your device. These applications will let you accomplish remote scheduling of all your DIRECTV DVRs at home or away as easy as making a call or browsing the web.

    Similar to the earlier DIRECT mobile application for the iPhone, these appplications let you schedule recordings of single programs or entire series with just a few simple operations. You can connect via WiFi or 3G on Sprint or Verizon Wireless, depending on which device and network you are using.

    Searching for a desired program to record can be done via the program name, or by browsing by channels or by date and time. When you find the program you want to record, you can select whether you want to record a single episode or the entire series and record it to any or all of your DVRs.

    The first screen you will see when you start the application after downloading and installing to your device is the login screen shown here. As you see, if you already have created an online account at DIRECTV.COM, you can simply log in and begin setting up the application for your preferences. Setup is accomplished on the settings screen also shown here. If you have not yet created an online account, you can either create an online account by going to the link shown on the login page now or browse program listings as a guest. (Note: These screenshots were taken from the application for the Android, but the screens on the application for the Palm look very similar.)

    After you are logged in, the first screen you will come to is the Home screen shown here. As you can see, there are options to Search for Shows, Browse by Channel, or Browse by Date & Time.

    Pressing the menu key will popup the options shown in the second screenshot. Home will let you return to this screen from any other screen in the application, Search will open the screen to let you Search for Shows, Browse will open a screen to let you choose between Browse by Channels or Browse by Date & Time, and Settings will take you to the Settings screen previously shown.

    If you choose to Search for Shows, you will see the search screen where you can input the name of the show you are looking for. For example, if you search for "chopped", you might get something like the second screen below. All of those programs have the word "chopped" either in the title or in the description of the show. If you do not see the program you are looking for, you can use the back key to go back to the search screen and be more specific in your input. In this case, however, we were looking for the Food Network program "Chopped", which is shown so we select it. You will then see a screen with all the episodes of "Chopped" currently listed in the guide. You may note at the top of that screen you can sort that listing either by Date or by Channel.

    If you choose to Browse by Channel, you will get a listing of channels as shown in the first two screenshots. Notice that you can choose a tab at the top to show them sorted either alphabetically or numerically. Clicking on the menu button in this screen gives an additional option to "Jump" in the menu as shown in the third screenshot. This is a feature unique to the Android application and allows you to jump to a specific range of channels, either alphabetically or numerically, depending on which listing you are on when you choose "Jump." An example of the "Jump" screen is shown in screenshot 4.

    Browsing by Date & Time works very similar to Browsing by Channel. You will first see the screen to select the date you want. You can use the plus or minus keys to select or you can select the field itself and type the input directly. After the date is selected, you will get the next screen to select the time, which works the same way as the date selection. Once the time is input, you will see a channel selection screen. The time frame you selected in the previous screen is shown at the top. Notice the arrows which will let you move the time in half-hour increments. Pressing menu on this screen will also give you the "Jump" option previously discussed.

    Of course, the final step (and the real fun of this application) is to be able to record the program you just saw advertised or a program you remembered you wanted to see when you are not at home to set the DVR. Once you have found the program from the previous steps and selected it, you can select record the series or record the single episode as shown in the first screen. You will then see the screen to select your Receiver, set the recording priority, and select the keep options you want for the recording. When you click on the Receiver selection, you will see a drop-down for your own receivers where you can select any or all of your receivers to record. For Priority, you can select Record if Possible or Definitely Record, and you have the option to set Keep Until Disk Is Full or Until You Delete. Once you have set the options you want and clicked on the green record button, you will see the screen telling you your recording has been scheduled successfully.

    The DirecTV app works fantastic. It's actually easier to search for the shows on the Droid now than having to use the remote to look them up. And, within about 30 seconds I was able to set to record programming between the DirecTV application and the HD DVR.

    This app is a great asset to any DirecTV subscribers with DVR's and bad memories :D. And it's quite a coup for the First Look to appear here at the same time it's released at DBSTalk. Kudos to Miami again!

    Exclusive news is all well and good but I dunno, I just dont see why you would think this deserved front page status. Not trying to teabag your droid parade:icon_eek:, but between this and "3.0" Im skeptical.
