Got my 15.3 update last night

Reminders will be useful , but the default for recordings is still one minute before and four minutes after.

You can change the settings, but if you increase the default start by a minute, it deletes a minute from the default end.

Which is worse than useless.

Catchup seems to have improved. Much faster and is probably what it should have been all along.

I've been able to set my default times to "Start Recording" and "Stop Recording" "On-time" using the Settings -> Recordings -> "Default Recording Options" screen. You can also set the defaults for "New and Reruns" and "Keep at Most". That seems pretty useful to me.

The problem with having global values that people can increase - is that people will end up adding too much time and when clashes start appearing they then start complaining that too many programmes are getting the end or start cut off.

Am I missing something, but if you use a PVR to record programmes and watch them when you want to watch them, what possible use are reminders?

Or have I misunderstood what they are for - when I saw "record and remind" it caused a bit of a head scratch

You can do more that. Keep playing. You'll figure it out

Can we just try and forget the "reminders" argument and move on. Those who wanted it have got their way and good luck to them. I hope they will enjoy setting all those reminders. There are much more important items to be discussed on the various forums.

Blimey - touched a raw nerve there

That's the trouble when the forum is not very active, obviously missed the whole reminders issue but I think I get the gist !

Good to know it's not just me, and given I use my PVR properly l will just ignore that 'feature' and accept that someone wants to use it

<back to sleep/>

Well, I've played for a while and not figured it out. Any chance of a hint (or perhaps, the answer)?

Sorry. My mistake. I assumed you could do more than I thought.

Someone said you can only add padding that adds-up to five minutes; and they were right. But, of course, you can can also set it to 0/0 or -1/+1 but once you get either past a value of 2 is where the problems start.

I shall go back to hiding I think

"fourth quarter 2012" is the latest promise.

After waiting nearly 2 years, I'd hope it includes some streaming instead of just a red skinned version of the US app.
