There have been DVR scheduler apps out for several smartphones for a while now and the apps are pretty cool. You can use them to control recordings on your DVR at home from anywhere.
Dish Network has now announced new DVR scheduler application that is claimed to be the first specifically optimized for the iPad. The app gives the user full control over their DVR and works with multiple DVRs in the same home.
The app lets you see 9 days of programming, set recordings, resolve conflicts, and delete recordings. The little app is available free for the iPad right now.
