  • Another vote for the BT remote here. I also struggled with the double ring at first and was always hitting the wrong buttons but after only a couple of weeks I preferred it over any other that I've used. I recently also obtained a Humax curvy remot…

Yeah mine's stuck on 29.58.0 as well, and tells me this is the latest when I try Update. I did find the box had locked up one day last week and only cutting the power revived it, I wonder if it got stuck attempting to update?
  • I had what I think is a slightly different failed recording issue this evening. I think it was caused by my not clearing an error message from the screen. I switched to 4seven around 7pm (following a reminder prompt). Found I have no signal so the …
  • Hi, Also just received 29.53.0 on my BT DTR-T2110. This looks interesting: Smart Landing on series recordings It's now easier to pick up where you left of in a series. When you open a series recording you will land on the most relevant episode. Wh…
  • Hi, Just to resurrect an old thread... I had some issues with All4 player this evening, around 6.30/7pm or so. Watched (or tried to) Monday's 6pm More4 episode of Kirstie and Phil's Love It or List It (S3Ep2 - accessed via the backwards EPG rather t…
  • Oh I've noticed this too, occasionally. BT Retail DTR-T2110 on 29.45.0, confirm delete ON. I don't often watch two recordings from the same series stack on the trot though.  Regarding the differences in behaviour - could there be something to letti…
  • I'm noticing temporarily-vanishing tile images more and more. It's really minor in the grand scheme of things. As an example – I had the first three episodes of Marcella recorded, ITV HD. On entering the series folder, I didn’t notice anything a…
  • Could I add another request here please? I too rarely stray off the HD channels 101-105 for live viewing so this mini guide upon startup is also useless to me. But what I would like is for the P+/- buttons to be active whilst this is displayed as m…
  • Hi Wayne, 27 for me (BT T2110 on 29.36.0).  Mine has only recently been upgraded from old-gen and I must admit I'm mystified by the claims of the boxes being faster on next-gen, as I'm finding it noticeably more sluggish generally. I mean it's not a…
  • Not sure if this is of any help but I have a few blanks too; all but one being films but all being one-offs and not part of a series: * Sarah Millican Homebird Live - 4HD - 18 Dec 11:08pm * Stephen King's It! - Sony Movie Ch - 18 Nov 9:00pm * The Gi…
  • Hi, have we got this one covered already? Two or more recordings in a folder. Watch one (oldest?) and delete it. You now are still sat in the folder with one fewer recording displayed. Back out of the folder into the MyTV tile grid; focus is on the…

 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.
