Live TV slice guide not operational when pulled out...

Post by Thunderthud » Thu Jun 06, 2019 1:52 pm

In Live TV mode, anytime I pull out the slice guide and hit "Okay" or "Enter", instead of going to the highlighted channel, (this is only if just the current time slot is pulled out), I get a listing, as if I had pulled out multiple time slots. If you then click on "Watch Now", (with current time slot pulled out), it goes back to current channel that had been playing. Then if you hit the down arrow it brings up the slice guide with no channel highlighted, with the green indicator highlighting something else on the progress bar and not a channel.
If multiple time slots are pulled out on the slice guide, and hit okay on one of them, I get an error screen "TypeError: Unable to get property 'C18437ENII10' of undefined or null reference, with a vertical list of things starting with "in" scrolling down off the screen. The program locks up and you have to alt F4 to get out.

Also, the problem of clicking on "Ok" button while watching a recording (in the process of trying to click twice to pause) has started highlighting the "FF icon" instead of the "Pause Icon", and advances the recording 30 secs instead of pausing. This happens frequently, but now always.

The Slice guide is not really usable. The jutting out and back of the slice guide, when trying to move down or up, is also very annoying and totally unusable on a FireTV.

Sorry to sound like a grump. I have six HDHomeRun units (two are retired old Dual US tuners, that I used to use with Snapstream Beyond TV years ago), so I've been a fan for many years and I am rooting for you!

Thanks for the note. You made the day of one of the devs with this. Adding to high priority.

You've just made mine! Thanks.

I'm quoting myself above, but this is still not fixed. Just an FYI.

huh. I was going to say that's expected behavior, but it appears the old UI didn't do it the way the current UI does. I guess that makes sense. For the current show, there's a big red button to press.

When you click on "watch now" (which you shouldn't have to do, should just be able to click ok), it doesn't go to that channel. It stays on the current channel.
