TV Anywhere 4.0 on Android - no Stop button on remote.

The remote control on version 4.0 of the TV Anywhere app for Android seems to be missing a stop button. Or am I missing something?

I hadn't noticed that until I saw your post.  I wonder if it is the same in the IoS version.  @Ernie_C is this the case with you?

Unless I'm misunderstanding, @Graham_A, the iOS version has a stop button (solid square).

Oh Dear. Yes, on my small HTC310, I can see there seems to be a Slow symbol where you'd expect the Stop button.

Is it a mobile versus tablet issue, rather than iOS versus Android?

Just installed on my iPod Touch to get mobile, rather than tablet, format.

It has both a Stop and Slow button.

This looks like an Android issue.

@Ernie_C Thanks for coming back on this one.

Would have posted this earlier but had to reboot the pc to get my dropbox to sync the screenshots.

New android remote screenshots, which are the same layout on my Moto4 play phone and Samsung 7" tablet.

Can anyone confirm that the new V6 boxes have Stop functionality? Perhaps this is the future Smiley Very Happy

Just spotted this and I've been meaning to complain about this for a while.
I have a V6 and when I have finished watching something, I have no idea how to stop it and go back to the page that gives the option of deleting it etc using the remote on the android app.

Pressing the yellow pause button followed by the left arrow next to OK seems to have the desired effect.  But have to agree the Stop button should be reinstated.
