Other DirecTV remote apps in the Android market claim to show the playlist from a DVR. How come yours doesn't?

It was announced by DirecTV in May 2011 that the ability to retrieve the playlists was going to be deprecated in the near future (and since then has been).  Rather than lure you in with a feature that I knew will be broken sometime soon, I chose to leave it out.  Update:  At the time of this writing (March 2012), most if not all receivers have already received the new HD GUI from DirecTV.  Along with this update, the ability to retrieve the playlist using 3rd party apps has been removed.  Playlist support in other apps either no longer works or has been removed from the app.
