Re: UPDATED NextBox Navigatr - December 2015/January 2016

It is not the progress bar that I am concerned about. That was always at the bottom as you used FF/Rev. We know have a scrolling banner at the top left showing the channel ad the title of the game I am watching. This banner is right on top of the score when you are watching a BPL game. I used to FF until I see the score change and then Rev to watch that specific segment. I know have to FF/ move up to hit exit to remove the banner and then back down to the Rev button. Cumbersome.

I am seeing a mix of same-named shows grouped (within the same empty grey box, meh), and some same-named shows in a separate grey box for each.

 

I haven't checked yet, but can only guess that those separated out are recorded on different dates/times (i.e. using the ANY operator when recording) vs shows that record once a week, on the same channel, same time.

 

Unfortunatley separate grey boxes for each is not helpful, and this could have easily been spotted with basic UI testing.

Can someone please tell me how to turn CC on or off? It used to be so easy and intuitive before, but now I cannot figure it out.

They seem to have fixed the problem I'd noticed and commented on with regard to the closed captionning.  I'm now getting non-gibberish english closed captionning on the programmes I've saved to my PVR.  Good.  Hope this is a permanent fix.

 

However, I've noticed a new problem . . .  once a recording has begun on the PVR, it is impossible to watch the program being recorded from the beginning of the program.  So, let's say I've set the PVR to record a show I want to view later that same night since it begins to air 15 mins before I can get home . . .  I need to wait until the whole thing records on the PVR before watching any of it!  It's either that or begin watching in real time and then go to the PVR'd version to catch the beginning (yes, that's ridiculous!).

This is the worst abomination of an online guide that I could ever imagine. Way to go Rogers.

I have been able to watch shows that are still recording. The tricky part is that they remin filed under Scheduled re ordings until they are complete. But I can go there, find the currently recording show, and watch it. I have a hundred other complaints, but this is possible.

You can't be serious!   That reminds me of the previous generation boxes, where it would start your viewing of in-progress recordings at the current time.   You'd have to close your eyes and REW to the start in order to go from the beginning.

 

Please tell me that isn't the case!

As the user above you mentioned, it IS possible.  

Go into which show it was.. that show wont show up in the RECORDED until its finished.

BUT

 

Go into the scheduled tab, and should have the one recording there.. and you can select to watch it from right there

Just did it 20 mins ago 🙂
