Worked just fine before the new version. I had the IP addresses of the receivers on my network set to static so I never had any problem. The new version will not find my receivers 99% of the time and it won’t remember them for next time when it does manage to find them. I used to use it on a regular basis, but now it is worthless. Update: I just discovered you can go into the settings in the settings app and enable manual configuration. Now I can enter my IP address and use the app.

I am a commercial AV installer and have downloaded this app over a hundred times at different locations. It is ideal when you have multiple receivers in a rack for a switcher system or want to control multiple receivers in a venue from one central location. The key is to connect the receivers to your network with Ethernet cables or a deca unit via coax, and make sure your iPhone/iPad is on the same network WiFi. I also suggest that you assign static IP addresses to your receivers by going to advanced IP settings and typing over the receivers last IP address digits (with the same or new digits). Having said all that, the latest update to this app has messed up everything. I have had several clients contact me this past week that the app stopped working with the latest update. This happened a few years ago, but was fixed fairly quickly with a new update. Until they come up with a fix for this one, I am advising other clients not to get the update, and always set iPads not to do automatic updates.

App worked flawlessly. The latest updates makes it useless. 3 Directv receivers in my house, all online. The app on my iPhone discovers 0. The app on my iPad Pro finds 1 and the remote has now been changed to resemble nothing close to my DirectV remote Thanks for the updates]. You should have left it alone. Useless now. Update: Never could find the settings link. Finally read a review. Go into your Settings> Find the app and select ‘allow manual setup’. Now set up your Directv receivers. Great. It works again.

Some reviews seem to think you can't use this without a remote bc you need to get the IP address of your receiver to set it up. You can easily look at your router for a list of IPs connected to it. Just go down the list. I tried the first 2. 3rd time was a charm. Simple setup. Was exactly what I needed to watch DirecTV without my remote.

Had used the previous version for over 5 years and worked flawlessly (over multiple networks in different locations). Now, when it actually connects to receivers it works great. If you manually enter ip addresses it will forget them (aggravating to have to enter all ip addresses every time I open the app) especially if you leave the network and get on another network (work vs home). It never “discovers” more than a couple of receivers, most of the time only one. I keep waiting for a fix because I used to love this app!
