Ever since upgrading to the latest U-verse app version 2.6.2 I am constantly greeted with the message that I "have no receivers at this location", "U-verse gateway not found" and "please reboot your gateway if you ARE (sic - how obnoxious are those caps from ATT) on your U-verse home network".
Well I HAVE (yes my caps are intentional) done this 20+ times and yes I AM on my home network.
In fact I HAVE verified this by browsing to 192.168.1.254 (i.e. the gateway's IP addy) and I can see my iPad fine along with the two receivers (192.168.1.64 and 192.168.1.65).
Obviously this app is broken for some as I've noticed there are a few complaints about it in the itunes appstore.
I'm not holding my breath that anyone from ATT will actually react to this or dare I hope get their software engineers to post a newer updated WORKING version, but I am hoping that some kind soul has a backup in their itunes of an older version of the ipa they are willing to share. Obviously there are no DMA violations involved here as it is a free app. Or maybe someone knows of a repository of old apps where I can go maybe find a prior version that was working fine.

I had the same problem with the iPad app and the receivers list after an upgrade. I finally gave up and just paired my receivers with the app again. Even though I had a problem doing this, it did finally work and put the receiver in the list. This is just one of many situations where I had to "reboot" or "restart" or "re-do" to solve a u-verse problem.

But that's the issue, it won't let me add the receivers. It tells me I am not on the network. Tells me there are no receivers even with me looking at their IP address on the gateway's page.
Sadly the old version of the ipa is no longer in my iTunes trash for me to restore to and I had never bothered to back it up with I-Fun-box.
