Re: New progress bar is inferior

@MandoN  Bit of a long shot. Don’t  know if the Pro Box  is your first from BT. But if not and you happen to have a remote from an older BT box,  you could try the skip buttons on there and see if they behave?

@MandoN  Well hats off to you for the recycling effort 😁.  But if you happen to come across one of the old remotes, you’ll find they work just as well as the Pro one. And you’ll have the Delete and Stop buttons back too.

Skip buttons working as they always have on (both my) I/R remotes under 0.9.4

@MandoN Like @GarethPrice  Just to confirm that the skip 60s /15s feature works for me using my Pro (Bluetooth/IR) remote. S/W 0.9.4. I wonder if a soft restart (a long push of the  BT button on the actual box until it flashes) might sort things out?

Re: New progress bar is inferior

Just to clarify…the I/R remotes I am referring to are the old remote, not the Bluetooth one (I gave up with that after one day, unpaired it, took the batteries out and it’s in a drawer somewhere!)

Re: New progress bar is inferior

Apologies @GarethPrice . I assumed you were using the Bluetooth remote. Looks like you really didn’t like then? And to unpair it too. The ultimate put down. 😁

Re: New progress bar is inferior

It’s not just the button  layout and the lack of some commands on the Bluetooth remote @pddco   as others have commented on, but the balance of the remote in the hand. I use the channel numbers (385 Sky News, 357 Sky Atlantic, 1-5 etc) mostly to switch channels, less so the up/down buttons and the short length of the Bluetooth remote makes this awkward to do one handed. The extra length of the previous I/R remotes works much better (for me, others may disagree lol)

Re: New progress bar is inferior

Just been having a play with the new play bar/info panel, personally I feel it is better looking than the previous version, particularly the channel logos showing immediately. 

The blue progress icon has a Sky Q vibe to it. The yellow marker for adverts on a recording is (as others have said), similar to itvX behaviour.

I haven't really tested the playback functions beyond that.

The remote just needs decent voice control and then the size is fine (similar to Sky Q/Stream), otherwise I concur, the previous version was easier to handle in one hand.

Re: New progress bar is inferior

In case others are wondering, I think I’m right in saying that the yellow marker for adverts only appears if you’re getting Freeview channels through IP. Not your aerial. 

Certainly agree about the comfort of the old remote. But being an up/down/right/left cursor  user I find the old remote frustrating to use. If only they could combine the two…
