Re: Hey, What Happened To "Hide?"

The new Record UI is tolerable but removing the "Hide" selection is was a very bad decision. I'm sure I'm not alone when I ask, PLEASE restore the "Hide" feature. No, you're not alone. The "Record Series" button went MIA as well. Recording a show is now a 4-10 click multi-menu chore when it used to...

Re: No record series

Left/right could work for padding. The problem is the Channel and Team selection has multi-select so it needs to be a full list. Are there really that many people selecting independent multiple channels to record that requires the UI and UX to be encumbered/complicated for everyone else? I posit th...

Re: No record series

Observations on the current flyout menu to edit a recording. There are three different UI visual cues and interaction types going on. The first option, current/all series, is a toggle when you click on the "[...]" icon. What? no "More" or "Edit" label? /jk ;) The second option, Channel, is a flyout ...

Re: No record series

IMO, in a perfect world, record would always say "Record". On the live TV action bar, there isn't enough room. The context wasn't the live TV action bar. It was in the discovery view when you clicked on the right-hand side of the row for that showing, the red dot would toggle on and off for one-cli...

Re: Q: Will HDHomeRun auto re record a One Time Recording

I don't think it will because the start/end time to record are part of the record job settings. I would setup another one-time recording for the other airing. If you want to make sure you record something (and run into tuner conflicts or weather or even network interruptions or delays *cough* CBS on...

Re: No record series

The reason for stating the summary, even for a specific airing, is to be super explicit in what is being recorded. It's easy to sometimes select the wrong option, or press the buttons on the remote one too many times, and I find it helpful if an action can confirm what it does on that window, inste...

Re: No record series

I liked being able to just click in the "red ball" area to toggle recording individual shows on and off. Super simple. KISS. I think leveraging the "red ball" = "record" as part of the button labeling can free up real estate. Super helpful for mobile where it is at a premium. Put the iconography bef...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

I am surprised that Microsoft does not care about the issue. I would assume that the remote vendors such as the one behind the PDP Talon got their specs from Microsoft isn't it? Microsoft dropped any future for WMC back when Windows 8 launched. The WinXP and Win7 OSes have long been end-of-lifed. T...

Re: What happened to "hide" and "record series" buttons in UI?

Gotta add that the effort required to record just one episode or a one-time special (in HD with multiple later broadcasts on SD channels) is just rediculous. It is now a 7-click operation drilling through two menus instead of just a on/off toggle click. There really needs to be a default start/stop ...

Re: What happened to "hide" and "record series" buttons in UI?

Good to know. Here is my same comment from another thread on the series button going AWOL. In the meantime, I did discover that if you have a keyboard, the "Delete" key will "hide" the show. I hate dragging out a keyboard to clean up the guides whenever new shows pop up that we'll never watch. Every...

Re: No record series

What happened to the "hide" series button? It wasn't that hard to click on the individual shows or buttons for "hide" and "record series". IMO, the new UI is not an improvement. The "hide" button will return. The changes were necessary to show the new recording options, as well as possible future o...

What happened to "hide" and "record series" buttons in UI?

The UI seems to have lost its options to "Hide" any shows, and the buttons to record all shows or current season. Installed the 10/28 release, and then the 10/30. No joy. Also very odd, the display of stations in the setup program is way off. Several stations are missing that I can watch and record ...
