DirecTV app does not support casting/streaming video to an external HDTV.

The Directv app does not support that. You just got lucky that it worked on the 5s.

Or more directly stated:  AT&T specifically blocks / does not allow streaming / casting through the lightning connector.  Sound, oddly, does seem to work.  This is one done by the lawyers, not limited by the technology.  It WILL sometimes work (video and audio) on a local wifi (same as your DVR) connection.

It is the channels that don't want you to view their content without paying for it.

In summary: Casting both video and audio to TV from a smart phone or tablet using the Directv app is not supposed to work. You want to watch on a TV then you pay for that TV authorized on the service like any other TV. The app is for mobile viewing only, not a way to get a free additional TV.
