Thought I would start a seperate thread for this box with just feature requests - NOT bug fixes, setup problems etc as there are already threads covering that this is just additional or enhance features we would like to see in future updates. If you like or want a feature already list just quote that post and put “+1” as your vote
That way Dish TV can easily trawl thorough and maybe implement some of our more popular requests. 🙏🏻🤞🏻

I’ll kick off with two I’d like.

1) - PVR - I’d like a “jump” forward /back in addition to the FF & FR. Perhaps a 1m, 2m, 5m and 10 minute jumps. That would be useful to skip ads and to jump forward through longer recordings to find the spot you want.

2) - Dish TV to work with Harmony to get this box loaded into Harmony’s database so that we can use our “all in one” remotes to control the box.

So sell as Freeview compatible not Freeview certified..manufacturers should NOT be limited as to what they can offer due to restrictions put on the device by Freeview.

I wish for three things about recorded program.

That episodes are displayed with the oldest first (left), currently the newest is on the left, that feels counterintuitive.

That when finished watching a recorded program that the menu doesn’t skip down to recommended programmes, it should stay on what you just finished watching. it’s annoying having to go back up to delete what you’ve just watched.

As others have stated...the option to delete immediately after stopping a recorded programme
