Rewind live TV

Just got you view set up

Not clear if you can rewind a LIVE TV programme back to the "start" or just the last minute

I have tried all the relevant buttons and all that happens is it jumps back approx 1 minute and starts again

I don't have a youview box, but if its like Sky ,then you have to hold the rewind botton for a few seconds and it jumps back to begining.

Re: Rewind live TV

You can only rewind something up to the point when you first tuned into it.

Re: Rewind live TV

If it is one of the big channels, you can step back to the previous program, providing that it has ended, that is what Youview is about.

Re: Rewind live TV

Until the programme has finished and is available on the catchup / reverse guide you can only rewind as far as when you switched to the channel you are watching.

 

If you are recording something then you can watch the recording from the beginning before it finishes by playing it from MyView.

Re: Rewind live TV

One thing that was better with old silver Vision box was that the if you pressed "record" during a programme, the recording would go back to the start of the current programme (provided that you'd been tuned in since the start, of course) - rather than the Youview tactic of picking up from the moment you pressed record.

A simple tweak, but so useful when you have got it.

(e.g. when watching a late night film and deciding to record it for another day - much better to have the whole film.)
