Looking through all of it there's only a few days that are blank, perhaps they're busy with sorting it out.

Currently nothing for this Sun., Mon. & Wed., and the next Wed.


Back to a positive note - some good movies for my household's tastes.

Thanks for the list

Some great movies here. And I guess I'll replace some that I previously recorded on the BucketList channel popup, as the 'MNET Oscars' logo is slightly less offensive than that oversized purple thing... not to mention the likes of Godfather 2 is still listed as "Movie Two" in my recordings

Sure guys :-)

I was surprised how poorly my OCR (text recognition software) did with it, else I might have done more. But it is free, and old.
Had it set to the Arial font, reading straight from the JPEGs, which were screen captures of the online guide in list format.

Here's the output for others having a boring Sunday. Interesting how it stripped and separated the times in the second file





EDIT: I've now put it in a "spoiler" envelope, as it made this post too long for most.

Wonderful idea by Dstv/Mnet to show these films but I for one will, on principle, not be watching any of them. I know this won't mean a thing to them but I refuse to have my viewing spoilt by the current, overly LARGE on screen logo stating that this is an OSCAR movie. Thank you but isn't that already obvious to all.

To those watching these movies I hope you enjoy them. Not being sarcastic as I truly hope you do enjoy them.

I salute your ongoing firm stand BB. Personally I'm not prepared to lose the opportunity with these better pop-up ideas, but only recording my considered truly valuable titles.

One can resort to a piece of cardboard etc. stuck on the screen, some have been doing that for years
Not that it's a laughable matter...

That is what we want JP, but sadly that's where I first went without success - just looked again, they're only illustrating a few of the titles and even their guide didn't help.

If you've found another section there with a proper list or something, please explain how to access it.
