    I have a Pixel XL phone running Android Oreo 8.0.0 and everything is working fine, however, I also have Nexus 9 tablet running Android Noughat 7.1.1 and on that there is strange behaviour: on the main screen if it is set to Sunday 8th Oct, then I tap on a channel logo to see that channels listings, say BBC ONE, the day is still Sunday 8th Oct which is great, however when I hit the back button to go back to the main screen with all channels the day changes to Sat 7th Oct, if you repeat the steps again the day will be on Fri 6th Oct.  
    If it helps, the app doesn't exhibit this behaviour on Nougat version 7.0 running on a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.

    I got excited for a second thinking that this was an update for the Android TV app. But it's not. Still stuck on the old interface for my brand new Sony, so have disabled it in favour of the Freeview EPG...
    Just don’t try to watch catchup from All4 or the itv Hub now, then  :/

    Well I can still access the All4 and ITV Hub apps from the Android App home screen - the only difference is that catch-up programmes cannot be accessed via the EPG.

    Still have a BT TV box with full-fat Youview, just that the implementation on Sony Android TVs seems to have been abandoned and no longer supported.

    It hasnt been abandoned, and it is still actively being supported; the recent All4 upgrade is testament to that.

    But it has certainly stalled.

    And Sony have had three iterations of these Android TVs, and still can't get them right; the Sony forum has ongoing complaints every day.

    Considering the flaky platform, it's a wonder that YouView performs so well on it; the major complaints we still get are that it can't record, and that you have to run it to get the All4 and itv Hub apps.

    As if, in some mysterious way, the latter was reason to find fault with YouView, instead of praising it for being the only way you can get either app on any Sony TV anywhere o:)

    I have just updated to this new version of the app, on a phone running Android version 6.0. I have paired the phone with my youview box and all other functionality works but the TV guide no longer downloads! I cannot therefore set any recordings from my phone any more! Any suggestions?

    Unpair and re-pair, and see if that helps.

    if not, delete the app, power cycle the phone, download the app afresh, and pair again.

    If it still doesn’t work, post again.

    Come to that, post again if it does work, and let us know what fixed it.

    I deleted the app, redownloaded it, paired it again and it works fine now, thanks!
