Default New Software - Nov 2017

So disappointed that the issue of losing CU+ titles is not in the "fixed" list.

I received the update overnight. I am happy with the new icons but the TV Guide and iPlate no longer has icons to show that series recording is available for a specific series. What is the reason for this? I believe it is a big step backward.

@Krugie if you press OK, you will see the various options for recording for that specific show.

Thanks for the reply Mom but it used to be much faster and I believe more convenient to be able to tell immediately without the need of an extra button push.

It also helped in seeing basically immediately which channels do have series recording active and which ones don't.

@Krugie - as we're striving to get all channels on series record, this will become superfluous in future and takes up much-needed space on the decoder and the TV Guide.

I also believe this is a step backwards. It was so easy before now I have to press OK to see if it is a series or not!

Ja my daughter has just phoned me about this. Why the extra step now? What was the original reason for doing this? Any one know what issue this step is supposed to have solved?

There was no issue I am aware off - the only explanation is the one given by MoM above about space on the decoder and TV Guide.
