Thanks for sharing some of what's going on. I was getting concerned that all the trouble with PTV was taking time away from an update.

I would love to hear about what you guys have been working on.
Sure thing. As mentioned before, a pretty big effort has been going into getting Slice up to snuff. It's still not really there, but at this point I could see us going into beta even without it being perfect, just because there's a lot we'd like to get tested elsewhere.

Since we were working on that, we decided also to get team recordings implemented in the new interface, and we've kind of gone a different way with it this time. Now you can select from a list all the teams in a sport you'd like to record, as they show up at least once in the upcoming few weeks. That means if you want to record the Kansas Jayhawks or the Duke Blue Devils, you don't need to navigate to a game to find them, you just select college basketball, and tick of the boxes for those teams.

That's kind of it for interesting features. Otherwise, we're just hammering away a bugs. For example, a big one was for a day was that it wasn't possible to switch from the beta UI to production UI. That's definitely not a good bug to have out in the world! Unfortunately, bugs are boring to talk about, but they're also where the majority of coding exists. I think there's some stat out there that only 25% of software development is production, while 75% is bug fixing.
Thanks for the update. I like the new team feature idea.

Oh, I forgot, we also made it possible to auto-start in the Recorded tab. Your post reminded me.
How do we access this option or is this still not available?
Unfortunately, still not at the moment.
Why could this "simple" stuff not be added to the existing version (why do we have to wait for the "rewrite")? I am tired of waiting month after month for what I consider basic DVR features and you guys are not inspiring a lot of confidence that you will be able to add features in a timely fashion even after the rewrite is completed...

Nateb,
Is it still just working out the LiveTV kinks or did something else thrown wrench in progress of the new UI?

Nope, still on same stuff. Today fixing the fact that there's no notification when you click the button to record on the slice guide that recording is happening. Also an issue of lost focus in one recording screen. We're definitely getting toward the end of more cosmetic fixes.
