iPad app 2.3.7 not working on iPad air.

Since the update to v2.3.7 last month my ipad air directv app no longer works.  It just hangs updating the guide, dies not see my networked receivers and is completely useless. I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no improvement. I tried rolling back to the older version before inclusion of GenieGo and that no longer works. Ironically the standalone Genie Go app worked fine after I reinstalled it. To make matters more strange the app works fine on my ipad mini. Both iPads use iOS 7.04.

For starters I am running the same versions on my Air and it works perfectly, so know that the system is okay.  On your HD DVR press the remote's dash :smileyminus: button.  Does it indicate Internet connected?  If so, run Menu -> Settings -> Settings -> Info and Test -> More system info.  Scroll down and note the IP address of the DVR.  Then on the Air go to Settings -> Wi Fi -> "name of group" -> note the IP address of the Air.  The two addresses must be the same except the last set of digits will be different.  If that checks out, I would delete the App, then power reset the iPad (hold the power button) -> slide to power off -> press button to power on -> reload App.

Works fine on my iPad air, too.  Hopefully dcd's tips will help you.

Unfortunately these suggestions have not helped. Same IP address with exception to the last set. I've uninstalled powered down reinstalled and it still doesn't work. I've been through and all my "whole home" settings are set to allow. Frustrating!

It appears there must be an issue with my DVR. My iPhone app has now stopped working as we'll.

Have you tried resetting all of your DVR/Receivers?   (Red button behind front panel access card door).

Yes, I've tried the red button, unplugging it, just about everything. It almost has to be a receiver issue. These are the errors from iPhone app.

This is what the iPad app looks like. It doesn't populate the guide either.....but it does talk to the receiver because the remote function in the app works. Soon, I'm not sure what to think. It's either a super buggy app or my receiver is messed?

I dealt with the same problem for months. I finally waged a war and got mine working.  I had the same exact symptoms and I continually did all the 'other suggestions' That did not work :

reset all equipment (sat recover, iPads, nexus pad, router,...)

uninstall, reinstall, and repeat...

nothing worked, until I started to look over my router/firewall logs.  I was seeing denies on port 8080 and with net bios and IRC, so I open up the ports and instantly I saw two of my iPads start loading my selected modules (live streaming, what's hot, currently watching,).

Bingo ! All working.  first time in a long time since the update that killed everything !

Thanks for the reply...I feel like this might get me somewhere, i fI can figure it out.  I've tried "port forwarding" on my modem but that doesn't seem to do the trick.  I'm on a Motorola Surftboard extreme SBG6580 and don't see anywhere to just "open" the port.

So much for that. Port8080 is open, no luck. No help from anyone at directv. There phone help sucks, apparently they don't have anyone that actually monitors or responds on these forums either.

I have the same problem.  It's been working fine with my iPhone, iPod and until recently, the iPad1 (yes, I finally realized that the iPad1 was abandoned).  Thus, I purchased an iPad Air. However, I just can't seem to get it working. This is with an HR20-700.  From the iPad, I can ping the receiver and even browse to port 8080 on the receiver, but the app just won't find it.

I Really wish that would work for me! I feel like I've done it 100 times with no luck. The app clearly has bugs they are not willing to fix. Uninstalling and reinstalling an app are not home network issues as some have suggested. This is so frustrating.

I switched out my Netgear WNR3500L for an older Linksys WRT150N and started having the same issue with not finding receivers from the iPad app. I installed dd-wrt firmware on the Linksys and verified network settings and again had the same issue. I also went online and verified all of the equipment. I finally deleted the app, rebooted the iPad and then reinstalled the app and it works great now. I can't really say why this worked but this was all over the course of a few days.

When you change out routers or make other changes to the system, the iPad  (or Phone) remains configured for the old setup.  The delete/reset/reinstall allows the iPad to be configured to match your new setup.  Note that this was covered on Jan 4 but apparently a lot of folks didn't read the post.

Right on @dcd, I should've mentioned your post is what my search hit to give it a try.
