@DarrenDev Since the software update there have been a couple of times I have turned the box on to find no overlay of the BT/Youview interface, the channels will pause and you can go up and down the channels but no on screen info and nothing happens when pressing the guide button. Only way to get them back is by pulling the power. In the 11 months I've been using the Pro box never experienced this before, but it has now happened three times since last Friday.
I too have the vertical bar.
Works fine for me. It's a good now and next. If you want more then you can goto the guide.
Technically I see no reason why you can't have both mini guide types and allow the user to choose in settings
