Note: To make it more obvious that this thread is getting updated, I'm going to start posting a new post for each week.

5/2

  • Hitting OK again now works on Android/FTV devices
  • When in a record task and there are no current episodes to record, hitting esc now properly exits the task
  • Sorting partly works in episode view now, work continues tomorrow

5/1 (this one should please a few people)
  • FF/RW no longer shows SliceView on Live TV
  • Some Title fixes on control bar
  • Deleting last episode of a show properly removes the show
  • Hiding a show in Discover (using the delete key) now goes to the next show on the list, rather than the top of the list

4/30
  • Crash fixed when last episode of a show is deleted (still some cleanup work)
  • some sports team selection fixes
  • Fixed weird red dot issues when deleting tasks
  • Small fix on rw/ff. More coming

7/5
* Account information screen under Settings. New devices are auto-added to the account. Not-found devices can be removed from the account.
* Support creating tasks without DVR access so you can track favorite shows (DVR access is required for the task to record).

SCRIBE and SERVIO automatically enable DVR access.
Customers who purchase DVR via the shop will still need to click the register link to create the first association. We are working towards eliminating this step.
