TV360

Recently updated from TiVo.
Deleted recordings - on my TiVo I could access these to recover any if required.
On TV360 I cannot see this feature - is it present ? If so, how do I get it ?

Re: TV360

The 360 does not have that feature for recordings, Beaker. So if you’ve deleted it by accident, take a look at the availability of the programme on demand.

Re: TV360

Some TiVO features were exclusive to the platform, so VM cannot replicate them on LGs Horizon platform without coming up against TiVO patents.
Wishlists is another thing you won't be getting.

Not exactly the 'upgrade' VM claim is it? Quite the opposite

You are able to Undelete recordings on Sky Q though , It isn't a TiVo exclusive feature.

Nope, it's why I don't ever want one. The only positive thing that is useful for partially sighted people especially is the voice control function, bur you can get that with Sky Q as well as other useful features missing from the 360.

There are lots of people on various forums who regretted changing over and, despite initially being told that they couldn't, some have managed to change back to the V6.

You can even restore deleted recordings on our Sky HD+ box.

Re: TV360

But it seems recordings are not going to be available in the future.

Sky Stream does not do any recordings and you have to hope the programme will be on Catch-Up.

I guess VM Stream is the same?

Not quite, Richard. I am pleased with the 360 because it allows me to select programmes on my watchlist with profiles. So I can separate my programmes from my wife's and also have a separate list for shared viewing. If you live on your own, you can separate genres by the same method, to make your programmes easier to find.

While I agree that it is a shame there is not a 'recently deleted' folder on the 360, it's not the end of the world and you can normally get your programme back on demand.

I have never used the TIVO's 'wishlist' function except when I tried it out initially to see how it worked, so I don't miss that at all, but I know some people do value it.

It's horses for courses really, some will love it while others want to hang on to what they've got.

Re: TV360

Thank you all for those interesting comments.

TV360 is quite good, but IMO not as good as TiVo - I wish I had never changed.
It came with a new computer hub 3.0.
The TiVo handset was much better, it was larger, in white with protruding shaped buttons, easy to partially see and feel in a dark room.
The TV360 handset is useless in such a case.
Also I used to use the Favourites feature all the time with TiVo, TV360 does not have this feature.

Re: TV360

Do you mean Favourite channels or Wishlists?

360 has profiles which you can use to customise your channel list to only show your channel favourites.

Ben, having created my profile of favourite channels for normal use, am I then also able to see the total channel list like on TiVo ?

All readers - the voice command feature is absolutely fabulous ! It actions any command given, even go forward or backward.

Once you have your own profile, you can simply switch to the Shared profile, using the button on the right of the remote, to see all the channels.
