Remote recording doesn’t always work
So I set my new box to remote record like I used to do with my Sky and Virgin boxes, expecting that it would update my planned recordings straight away. When I was met with a message saying that the message would be sent to the box in half an hour, I thought ok whatever. When I then came to watch the program that I had set to record, imagine my anger when there was nothing! No recording. No planned recordings. It just failed! Rubbish. I was starting to think I should have just continued to pay a monthly fee and get sky’s free box with it. Anyway, since then it’s seemed ok. I don’t know if it was teething problems or maybe just hit and miss

Hi Mile3434. We're sorry remote recording isn't working for you. Please contact email@example.com for help, they will be able to diagnose your issue.
Updated app.. date now changes but.. say I search 5 days ahead, BBC1 highlights and shows programs for the date searched and you can scroll up to see what’s on that day. Now tap on any other program and it reverts to what’s on later. This means to view what’s on that say across channels I have to put date in again and again. Easier if a date could be selected and whichever program you choose the schedule is for that day a now button would help go back to present time. Not tried on IPad as no update showing. Only update shown for iPhone. Hold on...this does work ok on the iPad I’ve just checked it. Now it’s not. Confused. An app with a mind of its own. Seems to work on iPad if I set date back from Today but not forward. Later shows instead of date set. Update. Latest app on iPad works for date change but as above reverts to what’s on later if another channel selected.

We released an updated version today of the app today that addresses a particular issue with the date navigation in the TV Guide. We'd love it if you could try this updated version and let us know how it goes!
I like the program guide but have found trying to set programmes for recording quite difficult. I received my pin which I inputted do not sure why this has occurred. Yesterday I set three series to record which appeared under planned with the red box besides this, but only one remains there today. Nothing has appeared under recordings on the app. I tried to record an individual program but when I hit record nothing happened. I gave up with this program and recorded directly through the box.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
