  • @Roy I have tried with or without an elongated press on the OK button. I have also tried it with Confirm yes/no.
  • 
I imagine the Sony TVs are what they refer to. But I wonder if they are considering the number of those TVs that actually have the YouView enabled on them or not.
  • I did add another comment here yesterday and I'm not sure why it's disappeared now. I'm still not used to these Vanilla forums obviously! Anyway, all I meant to say was that the BBC4HD programmes now seem to be appearing in search results again as of last night, and I can now add that the logo is back too! So all is now…
  • Thanks everyone - not just me then. Now you mention it, I did read about BBC4HD moving muxes a while ago but it didn't come to mind that it might be the cause of this. (I guess this Digital UK list needs updating sharpish!) Btw, as well as the catch-up icons now working (as @zulu17 pointed out), the programmes now also…
  • 
At the risk of going off-topic, I've often wondered why my TT 360T has an extra bit on the Settings page that neither my BT T1000 nor my BT T2100 has:
  • Exactly. The functionality of the Action Panel hasn't fully returned yet. Mind you, it's been so long since I've used the OldGen Action Panel, that I can't remember if pressing the Play/Record remote buttons had any effect at that point, or if you just had to select the appropriate on-screen button from the vertical list…
  • I think what Ian is saying is that once you have pressed Info in the Guide to see the details of the programme, you cannot at that point press Play or Record; you must press Back or Info again to get back to the Guide before you can press Play or Record for that programme.
  • 
Since the introduction of NextGen, I don't believe it tells you when it was last updated, only when it was last checked. Happy to be stood corrected on that though as I do miss that feature.
  • If the new functionality is just to be able to hide or unhide channels, then "Hide Channels" is a better name than "Edit Channels". If they are to introduce further editing facilities to the channel list, such as channel ordering/numbering/renaming, then "Edit Channels" is better. I would expect any hidden channel to…
  • VM, you know for a fact that "all platforms are going get [sic] all the missing features back"? You yet again appear to be better informed than many of the rest of us. Are you saying you have it on good authority that, for example, the mini-screen will return to the EPG? That is one missing feature that I've sorely missed…
  • Stephen said:One-fifth of the first one down, 3.8 to go! Stephen, perhaps I'm being a bit slow, but in what way is the latest update (which restores the sensible back-journey to the current episode rather than to the main MyTV page when in a series) only "one-fifth" of "Better journeys from recordings in/to MyTV"?
  • From your description, I don't think "this" has happened to you at all. The bug this thread is about is short freezes (perhaps lasting one second or even less) every few minutes. What you have described sounds like your common or garden behaviour of a catch-up player which will probably fix itself with nothing more than a…
  • Yes, it's most annoying. Luckily, the BBC sign-in feature comes into its own here as what I do now is find he programme I want to watch on iPlayer via the normal YouView means (eg picking from the backwards EPG), and start playing it in the hope that the bug has at last been fixed. This then establishes it as my most…
  • Why do you do this? By posting your "bump", you have served little purpose other than to help hide Richard Howley's complaint less than half an hour earlier.
  • And what was YouView's reply that you didn't understand? Was my detailed explanation of why I miss it not good enough for you that you had to ask the same question again? Sometimes you do worry me.
  • Certainly used to be the case, but I don't think it does it these days. http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcinternet/2011/02/bbc_iplayer_find_programmes_fr.html
  • It is not a stupid question, although I am surprised that you don't understand the use for Discover, as I'm sure you must know what it does. Like I said, I find it most useful on a zapper box; on a recording box, I will always have recordings waiting for me to watch, so not so much of a need. But on a zapper, I like the…
  • Well, for those of you who, I'm sure, haven't been able to get a good night's sleep since hearing my DN360T was still waiting for its NextGen update, I can put your minds at rest. Only a trifling 179 days after the initial rollout to my box began, it has finally arrived - jumping straight to the most recently rolled out…
  • One must always take the information on that page with a pinch of salt; it is currently incorrect, as is usually the case. There are also some discrepancies between the desktop version and the mobile version of that page, as is also usually the case. The BT 2200, the BT Retail 1000 & 2210 and the TalkTalk 360T are all…
  • This conversation has reminded me of a couple of possible bugs (or inconsistencies, at the very least) I pointed out earlier without reply from YouView - one a couple of weeks ago; the other a couple of months ago.
  • D'oh! Of course you're right, Roy. The skin is dependent on the connected ISP - I did actually know that. I don't know why I was thinking of the box's provenance. Senior moment on my part, there. Or possibly what I'd call the Rowley Birkin QC effect. ;-) However, I have seen NextGen on a BT line and on a Sky line and I…
  • Can anyone provide a link to what the TalkTalk EPG looks like? I have a variety of YouView boxes and all but one of them are BT-provided, so I know what the BT skin looks like. The other one is a TalkTak DN360T which has somehow still evaded NextGen, so I don't know what that might look like.
  • Ah, thanks - I wasn't aware that it used to behave that way. You're right - being a BT box 'user' (not necessarily a BT 'customer') has meant that my initial experience of NextGen was only quite recent. This is also down to my TalkTalk DN360T steadfastly refusing to find any NextGen update to this day. I call it my BLOB…
  • Roy said:I suspect he is harking back to the days when, after watching an episode, you were thrown back to live TV Can you remind me of how that worked exactly? I've had YouView for quite a few years (not as many as you, I dare say) and don't remember that behaviour at all. I could do with a reminder. :)
  • Hi Sarah, Thanks for managing to spot my comment in this labyrinthine forum! :) My particular problem seems to have sorted itself out with no need of an MM4 from me, this time. Thanks again. :)
  • Anyone suggesting that release 27.50 enables you to press enter/OK on a series tile to land you on to the episode you have most recently watched is either mistaken or perhaps confusing him/herself with a future version of the software that hasn't yet been publicly released. Either way, they should think before posting such…
  • Sarah, has this reared its ugly head again? Different error numbers this time, but similar problems - ie not allowing to watch BT channels nor BT recordings. IPC6012 & IPC6034. I wonder if an MM4 is going to fix it, like it appeared to last time. I must say, I've had this box over 4 years now and I've only had to perform a…
  • Just to add, I finally got round to trying a Maintenance Mode 4 reset and there's been no improvement. Admittedly, the box that suffers from this stutter is connected to an Ethernet switch then into a PLA. But the smart TV it is using as its display is also connected to the Internet via precisely the same route - and its…
  • Piers, even on the latest update (27.50), your screenshots are still valid. I agree, the display of the EPG data is poor at times.
  • Here's a screenshot of the CEO of YouView with his head in his hands just after seeing what programme details have been put on the banner when pausing MotD. This isn't a massive problem, obviously (a quick back out of the recording and into it again rectified the data), but it IS yet another bug which is more evidence in…
