Hi all,Following feedback from the withdrawal of the YouView mobile app, from the end of March, BT will be opening up the remote record functionality within the BT TV app for all* YouView users...
Hi, As some of you have noticed, BT have updated their app a little earlier than expected so some users will find that they are able to use the app from today. Thanks,Sarah
@jimb I've got it.
Not only does this break the YouView Community Guidelines “don’t just say you disagree, say why you disagree”, but it remains anonymous, an open invitation to anyone to take a free shot, with impunity, at any well-thought out post they CBA to try to refute.
@Sarah, you indicated that this cloaking was a temporary glitch, but it has never been remedied, and this really ought to happen ASAP.
The other issue can be remedied by renaming this button Dislike; but we still need to be able to see whose slack-jawed inertia hasn’t been enough to impel them to a reasoned response to something they don’t like, instead of a brain-dead finger jab.
Although I have to say I am fast moving away from using this forum at all. The BT forum has been much better for reasoned discussion (even when I am giving BT stick for what I see as poor decisions) and surprisingly decent responses from mods and tech people.
Thing is some people take a disagree as something personal...it isn't, it just reinforces the fact that yours is not the only view and that others have a different take on things.
I wouldn't read too much into it.
My fear is this community will close as part of the onslaught against retail and like Scott we'll all migrate to the BT forum.
my post above was a bit tongue in cheek as I actually couldn’t care a less who clicks what at the end of my posts and sometimes adding more comments is like going round in circles and just frustrates everyone and often sidetracks what the original post was about.
Sometimes I think it is better to just agree to disagree and move on
Totally agree with you Scott. It's getting very silly & at times personal.
How about being able to tick as many as you want (as above) at the same time! It is silly, rather like Facebook with "like". Just glad Youview hasn't added "hate" as an tick. That really would cause trouble!
At the end of the end of the day its a Youview box! But it's something that is used in everyone's home each day, causing frustration with the problems, current & still awaiting to be resolved.
Have a good Weekend. John L
That's not going to happen, it's gone, consigned to history.
You have a really simple choice
pay BT a subscription then you continue using the app to your hearts content.
Classic binary choice.
I get what you're saying. I just don't understand how Youview can, legally, withdraw an advertised feature of their retail boxes with no regard for their customers.
We have updated the main mobile app comms on our support site. These can be found here.
I will now have to take two (hopefully waterproof) devices into the shower to set recordings on both my current YouView boxes, but two loaves is much better than no bread
On an unrelated note, our World Cruise has been cancelled halfway round due to COVID-19, so we are currently in Doha airport on route to LHR and home, where YouView will no doubt be a great comfort if we have to go into 4 months of self-isolation
The android app is already available.
The app info says:
We're pleased to announce that we've opened up YouView recording to all users - even if you're not a BT customer you can now pair your box and set recordings, list them, and cancel/delete them too.
As some of you have noticed, BT have updated their app a little earlier than expected so some users will find that they are able to use the app from today.
Is the iOS app also available right now @Sarah ?
A bit of relatively trivial good news about this is a welcome distraction from the global nightmare.
