While Slice Guide Pulled Out for Info on Current...

Post by Thunderthud » Fri Dec 27, 2019 10:30 am

The slice guide is still behaving VERY erratically when navigating up and/or down, with the slice pulled out to view information.
Beside the annoying "popping in and out" as you channel surf, sometimes (randomly) multiple time slots will pull out. Instead of staying on current item.

And... when it does pull out multiple time slots, randomly, and you left-arrow/back on the remote, attempting to go back to current item, with info showing... The cursor sometimes winds up on the progress bar instead of the highlight staying on current slice guide item. It also jumps to different channels on the slice guide, randomly while surfing up and down with the remote

Also, if you do manage to get back from info mode to the starting slice guide mode, if you try to select a channel at that point, instead of just going to the channel, it pops up the recording option screen with an option to "watch now".

Version 20191219c and all previous new UI versions. Win 10, MiBox, Shield, Firestick 2nd Gen

The slice guide is still erratic in so many ways. :-(

I've never been able to channel surf much using the slice. to me, it's way too slow to go through the channels in any manner that allows you to see what's on. However - I'll agree the pop in/pop out randomness, the occasional blank green box popping out and such make it harder than ever to even try to use it.
