TV guide pop up

Ive noticed there is a new feature where a pop up box appears with information when looking through the TV guide Is it possible to turn this off It covers up some of the TV guide and is really annoying, if I want info I'll press the info button!!

Totally agree. Pop-up box obscures adjacent programme, especially if there are short programmes adjacent. Please, please remove or let me have the option of removing it myself. I am quite capable of using the 'info' button if I need to.

Re: TV guide pop up

I'll go along with that,  I too have found the not so cunningly concealed (i) button on my remote control and I'm not afraid to use it if I want more information about a programme. I neither want nor need to be bottle fed. Rant over

BT TV Menu Guide

Has anyone noticed the recent (??) update to the Guide on BT TV, where is automatically gives you more information on a particular program?

Is it possible to enable/disable this feature?

I agree.  It’s totally annoying.  Please BT remove it immediately.

Re: TV guide pop up

TBH I do not find it that annoying. If I do not want it to obscure short programmes on the channel of interest I just move the focus to a couple of channels away. Handy for showing the end time of long running programmes such as the MotoGP coverage.  If anything I wish it would show the full programme synopsis as seen when you press Info rather than truncating at the first full stop (is that an unintended feature or, as us programmers call it, a bug?).

Re: TV guide pop up

My sisters T2000 Youview retail box has had the pop up in the Youview guide for well over a month now and shes got used to it. I got the update to my BT Youview 2100 box just over a week ago and im starting to slowly get used to it. Im still to get update to my BT Youview retail box.

Would like BT to bring the restart progtamme feature that retail boxes has for a BBC show so you dont have to press the red button everytime you want to restart a live BBC show if you have missed the start.

You can restart a live BBC programme on a Youview box if you go to watch it through iPlayer.
