I switched from Dish to Directv this past Sunday, and my noticed none of my 3 receivers show the Pandora and Youtube apps to select to use. I called Directv and they did not know what to do as the rep was not familiar with the apps.

How do I get pandora and youtube to show up on the hmc receiver and two h24s?

Thanks!

simple... its not available on the HMC yet.. the flagship device.. the one you had to get now as a new customer (else would cost you too much later).. the one that was out months before hopper.. but still doesn't have Pandora, and can barely scroll thru the guide with any dexterity... but it does have a lot of tuners.

According to the DTV press release, Pandora is on the HD DVRs.. which somehow, the HR34 is not considered... and the H24 is not a DVR.

So just keep telling yourself you have lots of tuners... and as a DTV subscriber you get lots of sports, and not as many content disputes. Feel better yet? Shrug, neither do I (switched 3 months ago)

Pandora and youtube are on the HR34 (the HMC). Right now Youtube there are issues playing but Pandora works (from what I have read...I dont use it)

So just keep telling yourself you have lots of tuners
damn right...and very happy for it. Its nice to record 5 things at once whenever I want and not be hindered on when I can record more than a couple like you are on the kangaroo

Pandora just became available on Dish. It's been available on Directv for a while. The problem is that its only available on the hopper which has its own flaws. It is not available on joeys or any other receiver.

Again, Dish is behind Directv and is trying to catch up.

all depends on your point of view.

I seriously regret taking the HR34 vs. the HR24 (but with 2 year contracts you have to take that risk).... Arguably the HR34 wasn't ready for release, and still isn't, DTV tried to get "ahead" by releasing HW with beta level (at best) SW (the GUI has all the special efects (and special defects) you could expect from a GPU from 10 years ago). (from what I understand) The Joeys can also fully control the Hopper DVR.. something else you can't do on DTV (the H2x can schedule a recording, but can't change/edit the recording list, nor even see the list of upcoming recordings). If Dish has Pandora on the hopper, then they are ahead by having a service like that on their flagship device.
