DirecTV's iPhone App Browses, Searches and Sets Recordings

Illustration for article titled DirecTVs iPhone App Browses, Searches and Sets Recordings

The DirecTV iPhone App is available now, and can let you browse 2 weeks of shows, set recordings and control more than one DVR in the house. And, it's free.


TUAW says this is much, much better than the web-based method, and works well on 3G or EDGE. It requires one of the compatible models, and can even set a recording two minutes before a show starts. If you have a DTV DVR and an iPhone, you should get this. [App Store via TUAW]

Maikel Andre, or anyone that can answer this, could you verify something for me? I just got DirecTV HD-DVR but I have not connected it to the internet (because I'll need to purchase a wireless-to-ethernet adapter), but I imagine for this to work I would need my DVR connected, correct? It's not as if the commands come down the satellite feed? Sorry if this is a dumb question, I just want to verify that fact before I make the purchase of a $50-$90 product.
