Would it be possible to add an option to not have the live tv preview on the guide and myview pages? I very rarely want it when i'm looking at the guide or recordings. Thanks

    Hi Alex - welcome to the forum :)

    An idea about not showing the mini TV preview in the guide has come up before at

    http://community.youview.com/youview/...

    It is item 59 in the consolidated list of improvements and feature requests :)

    I would assume any implementation of that idea could easily extend as you suggest to cover MyView too.

    Thanks, yes that is similar and i'd missed it when reading your list. Sometimes its nice to have silence when looking at the guide :)

    Press Mute
    Back to my usual level of bafflement, then...

    If you tune to a bbc radio station and turn off the screen, you can browse through the guide to background music with no distracting picture in the corner of the screen

    I usually turn my AV amp to the radio to listen to some soothing music while doing my weekly recording timers check and set.

    Timers plural?

    I only use the one. I do have another PVR connected, but it's been largely superseded by Youview. Do you record, like, movies on one box, sport on another, etc?

    Timers plural because I record more than one programme a week.

    As it happens I am currently running four PVRs: One for BBC1/2 HD; One for ITV HD / CH4 HD, one for radio and backup of live sports and one for SD TV channels. Very little chance of having to cope with recording clashes.

    Wednesday is pub breakfast day where I read and mark up the next week's Radio Times and Tuesday morning I set and check the timers while listening to In Our Time on Radio 4.

    You're far more organized - and better equipped - than I am. :-)

    I'm a little confused by the pub breakfast. You take your aforementioned AV amp to your local?

    No. I take my Radio Times with marker pen and MP3 player with a recent RadMac radio programme on it.

    How much TV do you watch Gomez? :-)

    I'm confused by Gomez only marking up the Radio Times on Wednesday, and yet setting and checking the timers the day before. That's not just backwards EPG, that's (in our) time travel :-)

    I'm lucky if I record half a dozen things a week, at the moment. I tend to go through the channels I watch on the iPhone app at the weekend and set the recordings from there. It can be done very quickly and easily.

    One PVR is more than enough for me. :)

    Whoops! That should read Thurdsay, not Tuesday.

    Too much probably.

    And that should read Thursday not Tuesday.

    I use two PVRs (thanks YouView trial) and record quite a lot of programmes, but I rarely watch live. I find that along with a lot of stuff I don't want there's a lot that I don't want to miss. If I only watch recordings I don't miss anything I like and I'm never flicking channels and finding nothing of interest. And there's the added bonus of skipping ads on the commercial channels.

    My Toppy lists all of the films on BBC/4/MovieMix channels over the next week or so. If I want them I'll set the Toppy unless they are HD and then I'll set the Youview too. The Toppy also automatically searches the EPG for particular people/shows I like and will record them without me have to search them out.

    My TV has iPlayer and I can honestly say I haven't watched a whole program on any other catchup player in the last year.

    Once the android app is live then I'm sure I'll set the Youview to record more things remotely as I won't have to try and remember them.
