 Hi @Sarah The timestamp referred above seems to have been removed from the hover popup as well now... (observed only using Chrome on 2 different Windows 10 machines). So whilst today's posts continue to show the time, and yesterd…
  • Interestingly (or not) the error has resolved itself for me without any action on my part. Hurrah!
  • Darren, it's not just you, I have the same problem. Appears as soon as pressing the red button, on the "Featured" item, but I can select other items in the list (iPlayer etc) and they load OK. But also working fine on Samsung smart telly. …
  • (Quote) Cheers Yasha & Visionman, that was me. I must admit I have a lot less against the tiles now that they are uniform in size so it's clearly a much better journey around the screen. I'd still prefer at least an option of the list format as …

  • Just tried this on Current-gen as well, and interestingly (or not) the behaviour is the same,  ie the i button does nothing, and selecting a result populates the search box with the full title, so it looks like this was always a bit iffy.
  • (Quote) Wow, 1 year since launch ... My previous PVR died at the grand old age of 4 years. If some of that box's functionality had been crippled/removed for 25% of its life I'd have been absolutely furious.
  • (Quote) Sarah, we keep hearing how our feedback is appreciated, but you're getting the same feedback over and over and over. Just off the top of my head: - nobody wants to fast-forward for ever instead of being able to skip to a point - ... and, re…
  • Whilst house-sitting recently I was using my friend's Freetime box - I think it's  Humax HDR-1000S - and actually I found this clunky and restricted. It's very slow to respond, and in particular when it shows animations/transitions between menu scre…
  • (Quote) Amazingly this is not a "defect", it was apparently designed-in! I tried to get an explanation for the thinking behind this in another thread and the response from Sarah (Online & Community Manager) was: "Next Gen softwar…
  • (Quote) Great, another feature I use extensively that I'll lose should I allow my box to update any time soon. I really am struggling to see even a single benefit that NextGen will bring, in its current state - so I shall continue to block my box at…
  • (Quote) Thanks Sarah. Roy I'm with you on that. Whilst the tiles have clearly divided opinion quite considerably, I don't think I've seen a single post in favour of the MyTV journey and I hope that the YouView powers-that-be are taking this feedbac…
  • (Quote) I do have a left and right within the recordings in CurrentGen, Roy... I OK into MyView, then either Up or OK into the Recordings page 1, and left or right to change page. But, the little dotty arrows don't glow blue until I've moved up into…
  • (Quote) Thank you Sarah. I'm still struggling, however, to understand the logic behind this change; if I have gone into the series stack to watch an episode, why would I want to arrive back outside the stack when it finishes? Why would I want to be …
  • (Quote) Hi Sarah and welcome... Just wondered whether you could get us an explanation/justification for "Currently stopping the playback of recordings and going back to live TV instead of your recordings is an intended feature" please? …
  • Skipping to a particular point in a show is something I use frequently, much more than simply straight back to the beginning. This feature's loss is just one of several reasons I'm blocking the update to NextGen on mine (well hopefully) until there …
  • (Quote) Interesting point about the EPG Roy. I had considered this from a different angle - what if all the entries were replaced with images, and the titles cut in half? And what if the first row on any page of the guide was made twice as tall as t…
  • (Quote) Yep I can confirm in the old software also there is no confirmation when deleting from the schedule page, so it isn't something that been broken. I tested one-off shows, single episode of series, and whole series.
  • (Quote) Yes, poor analogy, apologies! I think what I was getting at is that Sky HD users aren't waking to find their interface changed to that of Sky Q, they have to actively make a choice to get that change (in that case, a different physical box a…
  • Yes the Sky Q interface may be image-driven but Sky Q customers have elected to buy/subscribe to that service, with the interface that comes with. Nobody is sneaking into a SkyHD customer's house overnight, and replacing it with something different.
  • (Quote) "Why should they put it back?" Quite simply, because I purchased a device with this feature, and come the update (my box is retail), I will apparently no longer have that feature. My previous box (Philips HDT8520 - now deceased) a…
