V6 Box does not indicate When recording

There are no Recording Lights that show when the box is Recording! that means that it will have to totally rely on the accuracy of the Guide Meta Data Accuracy (OH DEAR)! as we all know that there are frequent and erroneous Errors with the Meta Data!  New /repeats etc information.

I was reliant upon watching the recording lights at various times which I then Compared to my mental map of my Scheduled Recording.

With No Lights displaying will mean that I have my Schedule Recordings Spreadsheet Printed out  and the checking My shows at 20.00 / 21.00 etc etc etc! sheesh what a Rigmarole!!

You won't be getting any lights on the box so your only option is to send it back.

Re: V6 Box does not indicate When recording

I'm slightly confused have we got recording lights or not?
I must say I would miss some sort of indication of recording just from a glance at the box.
I know some evenings are busier than others with recording so I do get a sense of comfort knowing my 3 things are recording by seeing the 3 lights.

Sounds like not lights at all though.

Re: V6 Box does not indicate When recording

Another Observation is that the Volume level is of Lower output on the V6 Box! as I have had to increase my AV volume By + 4 for the V6 box to make it Audible.

My Old Tivo and Terestrial TV or Freesat were all on the same value.
