iPhone app playlist doesn't show all recorded shows - DirecTV

Problem seems to toggle in and out on every other release.
Playlist will only show all recorded programs when browse for tv filter is on. Even though these are programs that are permitted to stream to devices. However sometimes by selecting a recording all the device icons are checked and by selecting see all ways to watch now link will then display a Watch On IPhone button. Show will play but closing and opening the app and re-selecting the same program and only the tv icon is checked with NO Watch On IPhone button option.
Release is 4.9.101
Happening with OTA and cable stations while on home network. Programs show up & play ok on iPad app!
Like I said, problem toggles from release to release. Why can't D fix this once and for all!
