The record button is used to delete items in your recordings list. 

You can also press "R" on the TV guide which will show you a list of options.

@terry821 thanks for your early reply, but my query concerns lack of 'stop' button. If I am watching a recording and want to stop it to return to 'live' TV how do I do it.

Press the back button multiple times, or press the YouView button or TV Guide button to select something else to watch.

@DarrenDev thanks Darren I assume anyone of these options would stop the recording playback and take me to that point if I wanted to resume at a later date. I expect I would have discovered this myself by playing around but your help is appreciated and easier. Thanks again.

Lack of close button is irritating. Would be great if it could be programmed so holding down the back button acts as the close button

I miss the delete button more - I used it for deleting recordings, and backspacing when typing in search. The latter will be less important when voice search is enabled. Also, the back button is in a different place to all other remotes I've ever used - being above the d-pad is weird.
I assume the new remote was designed based on usage figures of existing remotes though - culling lesser-used keys.
Overall, I prefer the new remote.

Worth noting that you can still use the old remote with the new box if you really hate using the new remote.

Is there a photo of the new remote anywhere. I find the current remote difficult to navigate due to sight problems
