I completely agree, corgi998. One of my two biggest frustrations is the "clutter" of the new Recordings page. Mixing recorded and scheduled shows in a single place makes it almost impossible to figure out what has already been scheduled. This is especially true when you want to record a show/series that is more than a couple days in the future. Because those scheduled recordings don't always show up until much closer to the actual air date, there is no way to verify if something has actually been set to record......unless of course you try to set the recording again and then you get a pop up message saying it's already been scheduled!!
My other pet peeve is how the filter settings on the Recordings page reverts to "most recent" each time you close the page and open it again. I shouldn't have to select "alphabetically" every time I access this page. I know it's a small thing but, for some reason, it really bugs me!
Other than the two items above, I'm getting used to the new guide. I'm not sure it's revolutionary but I can live with it!
Situation: ridiculous. Further proof that Navigatr was not tested properly.
Further proof of poor design.
wins understatement of the year. I could not agree with you more. The design is amateurish and clumsy. I was already upset with Android for the terrible operating system they upgraded me to but, at least, they gave me the choice. Had I read the reviews on line I would not have allowed the upgrade. So some of that is my fault. Rogers did not give us this option. They just forced it on us. There is a line somewhere on their webpage announcing this 'upgrade'. It says something to the effect 'Give it a chance. You will learn to love it'. To me that sounds like they already know it is a piece of crap and a lot of people are not going to like it.
I have sent my dislike of this new format to Rogers and demanded they either fix the many flaws I listed to them or put us back to the only slightly flawed way it used to be. They won't do it, of course, but it had to be said. I believe I will not be alone in this opinion.
It's atrocious that this travisty has been foisted on us. Was it designed by some school kid as a homework exercise?
Try this one, KWoo, you come in shortly after a program begins to record and would like to watch it from the beginning whilst recording continues. No can do because programs recording aren't listed until recording is complete. Yet another improvement. Somebody at Rogers should look up improvement in the dictionary.
And if you're watching a recorded program?
I kinda think we'd figured that out Corgi. Still a bummer if you're already into the recording though, eh?
Could not figure out how to turn cc on/off in a recorderd program.
Like everything else with NAVIKRAP it extremely difficult and non-intuitive.
Please give uis back our old guide !
Here's what finally worked for me, thanks to @corgi998 (lots of "likes" ) with the useful info.
- live TV
- down to cc on/off
- select your choice on or off (its the opposite of what the text says)
- list to find your recording again
PS: Where is Rogers help here ?
PPS: Why do supposed "experts" who are guessing with random ideas in an area where they have zero first hand knowledge keep posting ?
Additional comment one hour later:
PPPS: Interestiung. Found out I already posted the magic sequence above and Rogers accepted is a solution back in early August, but forgot how to do it after being away for a couple weeks ? It just reiforces the earlier point about this thing being "extremely difficult and non-intuitive."
Thanks for the info on cc. Hopefully they will add cc to taped shows soon..that is when I used it most.
I understand the steps that I need to follow re closed caption. However, having to start the closed caption before watching the recorded program is awkward. There needs to an update where we can use cc whenever we want it as with the previous program.
