    I have arrived at this forum as my TV box was update a week ago. I have tried to get used to it - and some areas are good - but the MyTV area is useless. I want the option to have an ordered list as well. 
    I don't know what user were used in the testing, but this option is missing.

    Yes keep the option of the image layout - that may suit some , but to lose an organised list of recordings is a real miss in the functionality.
    I guess the the UI designer maybe got carried away....

    if there is no update to a list view option - I will be looking elsewhere... even into the dark world of SKY!)

    It is a work in progress though Scott, YouView have confirmed that.

    If you are hoping for lists it will be difficult most are moving image based.

    @Daniel - i wonder why a simple grid view option is such a problem for the developers?

    its a tile view. 
    Each to their own. I will be looking for a UI that i enjoy using. Clearly a lot of people disagree..

    Scott Leslie (thanks scott for giving me reason to edit this!! lol), I doubt it is a problem per se, it is just a question of moving forward and enriching the experience long-term, the possibilities with tiles may seem static at the moment. But without going over old territory, or drawing false comparisons, look at how computer software moved from command lines, through windows (I use the lower case advisedly!) on to portable and mobile devices with click/tap/swipe and so on. I suspect current forms of remote controls are not likely to be around much longer and when touch devices become the norm then a graphic UI on our TVs and associated feeders will come into its own. But one step at a time, eh? ;)

    lol - i get progress and change - however it does feel like someone selling windows 8 without the start button... 
    It is all a  matter of opinion - and I think the amount of feedback via this forum - has obviously stirred opinion

    Indeed and there are other examples. And what about any smart phone/tablet acting as a remote, as they are beginning to already? But we are only scratching the surface with this stuff.

    "It is a work in progress though Scott, YouView have confirmed that.". So why release it then, if it's not finished, wait until it is and then release it, not a half finished piece of junk like it is now.

    Including the UHD area... 
    But to my amazement, Sky Qs 4K iteration has been heavily criticised by its users. Unfairly, in my opinion.

    Scott, you could consider a Panasonic. I have had a DMR-BWT735 for a few years and that has lists. I think the current version of that (DMR-BWT850) also has lists. The overall gripe that I'm hearing is that people want the choice of lists.

    On my Windows 10 PC I have a choice of how to invoke a program, I can use the list, a tile or the desktop icon - ie a choice. That's all we're asking for, not the mess we have at the moment.

    @spargo - why are you comparing a pc which by its very nature should be user configuarable. You should compare how many options the ui by sky, Netflix, virgin give you.

    Hi VM I don't like Sky's implementation of ultra HD either as you know I'm also a sky customer. I would prefer a full live channel and don't like you have to get a 2tb box to get it.

    I in the end decided to only get a 1tb sky q and only have sky sports on my BT tv box yes you get less sky sports channels but the ones I have everything I need plus my wife uses the sky box more than me. I would never hear the end of it if I filled it up with sport.

    On computers, i've never switch it on and it's been automatically updated, i've always been asked if I want to update programs and i've always had the choice to go back to the old version if i wish. Two very simple things that should have been done with this update

    This isn't a computer.... why are people comparing apples with oranges. My Sky Q box updated without asking me and doesn't allow me to change options. How user configurable is the virgin v6 ui. Or the Netflix ui.
    Stop comparing a tv (stb) ui with a personal computer...

    It appears that a lot of people just want to live in the past, which is fine and not a criticism.
    But for the love of, will everyone please stop comparing a YouView to a PC, as its a BOX for watching TELLY on.

    It may not be a personal computer, but it is a computer, ie its got chips in which up can program and up date the programs on them and change the settings via the remote, exactly the same as you can change the settings of how you view files on a PC

    Sorry Martin Ward, I thought you were joking. And while all devices are computerised to a greater or lesser extent, comparing a TV box to a PC is not exactly a fair fight. Your beloved Vista has reached end of life, despite massive processing power available. YouView have committed to keep all boxes going, despite miniscule processing power.

    No, Martin. This box is propitiatory in nature and locked and DRM'd up to the eye-balls and it has deliberately been designed so.

    The comparison to the Sky Q box is not valid as that is rented whereas I purchased my YouView box.

    It is valid there both sets top boxes it is not relivent about where you get your box. Most people however get there youview box from a isp but that's also not relivent. The comparison made is basically a comparison of the uis of two set top boxes.

    I disagree with you Daniel. There's your opinion and then there is mine. One is just as good as the other. I say it isn't and you say it is.
