Alternative Schedule suggestion for EPG guide Menu.
Some time back the Alternative feature was included with the original Youview software, before NextGen came along. Although I don’t use it much myself, as I also use other pvrs, a member of my family who only uses Youview to record, wanted to find an alternative slot to record when faced with a clash on 2 channels. Asking my advice, I rechecked and I must say I was surprised it was not re-included yet.
I know that the search bar does offer some form of showing on demand/subscription & also whether there is another day/time to record, but for a non-technical family member (!) used to only using EPG, having to remaster more menus makes it more long-winded process to learn. I know you can hit record on the search bar. But then to see the whole week ahead, you have to go back into EPG, so it does make it a longer process in long run. They only want to use the EPG screen. They lost interest when I explained this . . . .
Amazing that Freeview & Freesat offer this facility that is very useful. Hopefully the design team have thought of this to include in the design. Topic was discussed back in May 2017:
Anyone else got any thoughts on this? John L
