XBOX One DVR functionality? Makes you useless...

Dear XBOX One OneGuide:

I thought you were going to be SO cool.  I was going to be able to control my DirectTV box using my new XBOX One OneGuide. So I thought.  But so far, I have found no way to control the DVR functionality that I (and the rest of the TV watching universe) relies on to catch up on favorite shows. I can do this using the "XBox, watch TV" command (which is awesome!) but how hard would it have been to put this functionality into the One Guide?

This is another example of something that could have been done SO well, and misses one very crucial feature - if this app was a piece of paper I would crumple it up and play hoops with my trashcan.
