Video: DirecTV's App Store leaves a lot to be desired

I know the DirectTV app store has been out for a bit, but I watched this video and was shocked. It seems that DirecTV added these apps or widgets just to be cool and hip like everyone else. They seem like an afterthought and not a well-developed platform. Now, like Dave Zatz points out, it could be that the system has so much lag because of the crappy DirecTV house brand DVR, but don’t you think the developers would code for their hardware? Any DirecTV users care to chime in about the TV Apps? Are they really this bad?
