For the record, I'd like to see the old timebar functionality brought back PLUS I'd love to see 'padding' being implemented for recordings AND I'd like to see the old 'action' functions being brought back when pressing 'info' etc (although that one is apparently coming back). Another one that BT trumpeted before Next Gen was released was keeping the old 'action' menu whereby when you accessed a recording you could choose to either watch the recorded programme or choose to watch it 'On Demand' instead. That was also useful for me.


 Not happy with calling it timebar function but the ability to put a jump to start time is the key one for me.  Its loss has just about made it unusable for me

How cynical!  Are you inferring YouView/BT doesn't listen to its customers. Smiley Wink

Re: Get ready for your brand-new BT TV experience

Not sure if this helps anyone with the old DTR- T1000 box but I contacted BT today to ask if they are still supporting this box with software updates. Their response was that they no longer supply this box, which I already knew, and offered to supply me with the G4 free of charge as an active BT TV customer. Should get the new box in about 72 working hours. Perhaps others with the old original box should also contact BT!

That's the functionality I mean: the ability to put a jump to start time

That's the one I'm going to miss Saturday evening when I have to press a darn button 30 times to get to the kick off in the football.

To me the lost timebar function was we used to be able to see exactly what time position you were in the paused live feed

 

As for 'jump to' I record BBC breakfast every day but only really want to watch the last local news that starts 2 hours and 26 minutes into the recording.  So guess what I do now (and it isn't wait through 5 minutes of fast forward or 146 jump 1 minute presses?

 

 (I Best Whisper it quietly: I now record it on Sky of course)

You can use the fast forward button which to be fair is pretty speedy.  I just whizzed through a 30 minute prog at lunchtime to get to 28 mins and it only took seconds on the fastest speed.

Well seems there is a hidden 50x fast forward speed as have just done some detail speed tests on a long recording and it was just 3 minutes to get to the 2 hours 26 point.  It only showed 30x but would go faster with further presses of fast forward.

 

Still a long time to wait but not as bad as it says it will be

True. I think I've got so used to using the skip buttons to bypass adverts I've almost forgotten about fwd/rew 😁
