In the guide screen, I have duplicate entries for BBC1, 2 and 3. No other channels are duplicated. One has a logo and the other only has text in its place. One appears to hold the TV picture and the other appears to hold the now and next info which is missing from the channel with the TV picture. This was after installing V5.21a

Any ideas how to fix it?

Regards

KeRa


If you run my "Channel Manager" TAP with its default settings it will get rid of all your TV duplicates, automatically keepin the strongest.

My wife often moans (nowt new there then) because there is little to no instructions or help screens within MyStuff.

One example is the archive screen. On this screen it does not tell you what buttons to press to, for example, move a recording or delete it. And this is why she never deletes stuff she records.

Would it be a good idea to have a standard button (i.e. the I button for the sake or argument) that worked on all screens and brought up a new box with a list of available options on that screen.

This would also help reduce clutter on some of the screens that do have options.

What do you think?

There is a help screen in the Archive. Press PipSwitch I think by default (though I'm probably wrong) and the description area changes to a help legend.

We are planning to have help screens more easily available, eventually. However adding them takes up time that could otherwise be devoted to new features!

I'd be inclined to agree, particularly given that the EPG has a prompt at the bottom.

Hi Scrib,

how about printing the key sections of the manual and laminating them for SWMBO. Maybe it would make a nice Valentine's Day pressie? Wink

Perhaps it would be best for a standard key (say 'Text' ) to be available as 'Help' on all MyStuff screens.

Then a consistent 'Press TEXT for Help' message could be displayed in a consistent place (ie. bottom corner) on all the screens.

Pressing 'Text' would then bring up a new MyStuff window with all the options relevent to that specific function (ie. EPG / Archive / Timers).

Just my (wife's) view... Del

Very good idea.

Currently the Text button is only used for jumping to primetime, which is rather obscure, not terribly useful, and can already be changed to other buttons. No doubt there would be a few complaints anyway, but a consistent help function would be well worth it.

That's pretty much the way we're planning to do it.
[Edit - i.e. have a consistent key and a prompt to press it that brings up a help screen. The key itself hasn't been decided.[/Edit]

At my age habits are deeply engrained and difficult to break.
I don't seem to recall seeing any comment from the MS team on the current behaviour (5.21a) - I believe Ian reported a possible bug whereby selecting a currently recording program from any of the EPG pages results in chase play starting rather than seeing live TV.

Is this intentional behaviour or is it a bug? Surely as Ian said, pressing OK in EPG screens should show live TV, if you want to watch a recording (or chase play) then archive is the place to start.

Hi all,

While I'm using V5.0 at present I don't think this feature has been implemented in any version so I'm posting in the most current version of Mystuff.

What I find really annoying about watching recorded material, especially something that has been partly watched is that it ALWAYS starts from the point last watched and getting it to start from the begining for me just seems to much of a frustration.... so what I would like to see is a pop up box when a recording is selected that gives 2 options....

A) Play from last view point
B) Play from begining

It's intentional (although there was a bug in version 5.1 which meant it went to Live TV - see the Changelogs on BobD's website).

This is to prevent you accidentally seeing the result of a sports event or finding out WhoDunnit before you've watched the beginning of the recording.

To watch from the beginning, press PLAY instead of OK (or vice-versa, depending on your K11 setting).

In Archive, you can also press STOP twice to reset the played percentage.

You can also press SlowMo (by default, or whatever you've chosen for K7) to resume playback of whatever recording you last stopped without going into the Archive.

Thanks I'll take a look at that.... so many things to remember!

I still like my idea tho' Very Happy makes it easier to get to grips with and less to think about/remember.

That's what the K11 setting's for Wink. Set it the other way, and pressing OK will always play from the beginning.
