    DIRECTV's app for tablets and smartphones is actually really good. Not that you should be surprised, of course. While it started out as a plain scheduler for recording programs to your home DVR, it's become a powerhouse that gives you the ability to watch over 100 channels, stream 20,000 on demand programs, and control your home equipment. It also lets you offload content so you don't need to worry about your cell phone plan.

    But sometimes it... hiccups.

    A recent string of updates has left some users with no ability to stream TV from their DVRs, use the app as a remote, or do the kind of next-level stuff that makes it so useful. DIRECTV seems to have fixed most of the problems with the latest update and hopefully that's the end of that. But, if the app is still malfunctioning, there are two things you can do.

    (1) Try, try again.
    I know that Einstein said that it's insane to do the same thing over and over and expect different results. But in this case, it could work. Some of the problems reported by users have been server-related, and that means that the problem could be fixed on its own. Give it a day or so to see if things just go back to normal as they should.

    Remove and reinstall... after a while
    Practically every problem with the app not working can be solved by removing it and reinstalling it. The trick is, you can't reinstall it right away. Most people agree it takes about two days for DIRECTV's servers to register that you've removed it, and in the meantime some of those hidden processes in your phone or tablet will also clean things up for you. If you don't wait, it seems like some of the settings that got messed up will not get cleared.

    Of course that means you're without the app for a while but that's the price you pay.

    Yes, but only if you have this dish (or other sort of HD dish or dome.)

    DIRECTV's Genie DVRs require the use of SWM technology. That means you must either have a SWM-enabled dish like the Winegard Trav'ler SK-SWM3 or something similar. The dish must be capable of seeing at least three of DIRECTV's satellite locations: the 99, 101, and 103 locations. Round dishes aren't supported anymore by DIRECTV Genie, although if you've previously set up your Genie to work with a round dish it will still work.

    Recently, we've begun hearing of people who had a working Genie DVR on a round dish or SD dome and they stopped working. It's all part of the same problem. DIRECTV always intended the Genie to work with an HD-only setup and as part of their latest software they've changed the dish setup so you can't even choose the round dish or Phase III dish anymore.

    We've received reports that some DIRECTV techs don't think a Genie will work in an RV, but if you have this dish or any Slimline-3 or Slimline-5 dish it absolutely will work. Your friends at Solid Signal can help you with the setup and activation. Just give us a call at 877.312.4547 and we'll take care of everything! Solid Signal is one of the nation's largest dealers for both DIRECTV and DISH RV installs and we can arrange everything from the receiver to installation services if you want. We've got it all!
