So I’ve read countless tips on the forum, hours upon hours with technical support also to no avail.
This has been a problem for a year with me now, my app won’t locate the DVR no matter what I do. Tickets supposedly escalated to Engineering but no response received, that was 10 months. I gave up but have now decided to fight the fight again.
First; I have an IPhone XS Max, app deleted and reinstalled the app countless times, I can’t even get the app to load programming on the phone much less connect to my HR54-700 receiver. I’ve turned external access off, reset the receiver, reconnected to internet, turned external access back again, doesn’t work. I’ve ensured over and over that my phone is on the same net work as the receiver, nothing is working and DirectTv is clueless as to what to do. Yes, the receiver is 100% connected wirelessly as the apps on the receiver and On Demand works with no issue.
The kicker is I can login using my parents info with nonissue, programming loads up fine but they don’t have a genie or alas, I would use theirs. It makes no sense why there’s works on my phone but mine won’t. It has to be an account issue but DirectTv will not delete my account and start over with a new account #. I’m at my wits end, this was a major draw as to why we signed up.
And while im ranting, this latest software update on the HR54 stinks as well, it almost seems as if I haven’t gotten the complete update yet, menu items looks incomplete or something but I’ll tackle that issue later on. When I hit Menu, and “What’s on Now” I can see the title to the shows but not the picture for the show, it’s just a gray box with the title, wasn’t like that before the update.
