Recommendation: Remove All Recordings line

Post by Jimmersd » Mon Jan 13, 2020 5:44 am

Just a recommendation. I think that the All Recordings under Recorded is redundant and really clutters up the page. It should either be removed or made optional.

Anything that isn't listed as a series, movie or sporting event can only be found in the All Recordings section. You wouldn't be able to play those kinds of program recordings without it. The only recording I currently have like that is the Golden Globe awards but I had half a dozen or so Christmas specials last month.

Okay, then I propose they add a Special Events category as a catch all for the undefinable and do away with All Recordings

If you do intend to keep it, maybe add a wrap to the line so it's not unending string of programs.

I understand your point of view. I tough like this for a while.

But i do like that all recording is in chronological order to accelerate finding recent series/movie. Most of the time I stay in this section,

I do like series/movie section to be in alphabetical order to be able to find stuff that is more archive.

Okay, how about this. Relocate the All Recordings to the very bottom of the page instead of making it the first item. In this order; Series- Movies- Specials- All Recordings.

Preferably not... i typically only use all recordings as it is ordered the way i prefer... personally i preferred it when it even "duplicated" series when many recorded recently but since clicking on any took one to the same place (list of recordings of series) rather than play that episode it did make a little sense to remove "duplicates" on that line.

However every now and the I have seen new recordings missing from all, but do appear on the actual series.
