Web Based TV Guide & Remote Recording

The recent addition of a remote record feature is brilliant, and is clearly being well received by all.

One thing that would be useful (and something that other platforms offer) is a web based TV guide, at the YouVIew website.

If that web based guide could enable a login so that remote record requests could be sent to that individuals YouView box, it would be a great alternative to the mobile app, particularly for those who don't have a compatible smartphone (as presumably this could work on a variety of device platforms, as well as desktops).

I find that if I am at my office PC I often browse and search online TV guides at lunchtime, and being able to hit "Record" on this without having to go and find the same show on the mobile app would be really useful.

Thanks, keep up the good work.

I would love this feature, much faster searching on a browser than the YV box.

agreed...  Some web based EPG and remote scheduling would be great and easier than the mobile app (which is a handy tool)
