The other thing to remember, while you can record things like the news, you don't need to remember to do this given it's available on the 3 day rewind (catch up). Also, if a programme can't be recorded, it can often be viewed on the 3 day rewind/catch up feature.. all indicated by the icons against the programme in the guide.
If there were one thing we'd like to change, it is the complexity of media copyright which can be based on geography, time, broadcast vs on demand vs downloadable, Personal vs commercial, etc.
I hadn't picked up that feature yet, looks like you have to go back through the EPG to find programs that have the symbol on them. That is a very good feature to have. There are quite a few features you don't pick up until you start using it. If it had chromecast functionality it could be the perfect device for many. It does have some chromecast functionality, as the youtube app on a mobile device can 'cast' to the youtube app on the VTV
The best way to see what you can go back 3 days on is to press the D-pad up or down key when watching live tv. You're then presented with the "mini-guide" which only shows what is on now or what can be viewed from the 3 day buffer on each channel as you surf up/down/left/right.
