How can I delete a programme now with this updated BTTV. When I press the delete button I get the subtitle sign.
Are you sure?
Are you sure you want to delete x [number] recordings of [insert series name]?
The context of the question surely includes an implied 'and only that programme'?
So while Visionman put his finger on why Sue was getting subtitles instead of the programme being deleted - as with CurrentGen, the programme needs not to be playing - we know she was asking about NextGen, we know the above is a pitfall of NextGen, and I don't understand why Visionman does not think it is part of the issue being discussed, and nor why you rather backed down to him?
Indeed, if it ever had, how would anyone ever have turned on Subtitles while watching a recording?
Delete the whole series?
Are you sure?
Are you sure you want to delete [number] recordings of [insert series name here]?
User still presses DELETE, at which point in a new update, now a further message pops up -
Are you really really sure you want to delete this entire series?
User still presses DELETE.
Are you sure no one else in your household wants to watch this? Press Y/N.
User presses yes, then DELETE.
OK, but don't say we didn't warn you. Series deleted.
A few hours later partner wanders in and accesses MyTV.
"Hey... wheres my series recording gone?"
"Oh, that bloody box is playing up again."
"Thats four times now."
"Oh, come on YouView!"
Select MyTV -
Move the cursor over the content you wish to delete (but don't access or click on it).
Press the DEL/sub button and this message will (should) appear -
Are you sure you want to delete this recording?
If yes, press OK and it should then be gone.
Or, depending on your point of view, you might want to describe this as the recipe failing.
Either way, a somewhat incomplete 'How To' :-(
