Today: I discovered that DirecTV has an iPhone application that enables you to access your DVR account and manage your recordings remotely! OK, I am not the first to discover this, it seems I am user 1,000,001.
It is very intriguing to me, that I can be sitting in Starbuck’s while sending a programming request from my iPhone up into outer space where it hits a circling satellite and bounces back down to my satellite dish, travels on a cable from my roof to my living room and programs the DRV box. I started bouncing requests up and down like a basketball. My wife and daughter could not understand how dad learned how to program the DVR.
Never again will we need to ask a neighbor to break into our home to program our DVR.
