DirecTV iPhone App - Choppy audio/video with Airplay/Mirroring to ATV

I was happy to hear DirecTV activated Airplay and updated to 4.2.3. However, I am experiencing choppy audio/video when using airplay to my ATV from my iPhone 4S. THe video plays as expected on the iPhone so the problem is definitely between the iPhone & ATV. I noticed DTV is using Mirroring rather than true Airplay like HBOGo (video is displayed on the iPhone in the DTV App where as there is no video displayed in the HBOGo App). I have no such issues with HBOGo App, YouTube or anything else streaming to my ATV via AirPlay. I deleted and reinstalled the DTV APP but the choppiness remains. Anyone else experiencing this? 

 

Also, I noticed Live TV from the DirecTV App is still blocked from Airplay/mirroring? WTH?

Obviously there is something wrong in your set up.  I just tried it with my iPhone 5 and it plays flawlessly.

Only DirecTV knows, but my guess is a contractual issue

Setup is okay. Might be the 4S but I doubt it since everything else works as expected.

Well, now I have a 5S and the DirecTV app does the same thing. Other airplay apps work perfectly. I'm experiencing the same jerkiness on 2 wifi networks (2 residences) so it's the app, sorry to say.
