V6 missing remote button and can't find an alternative.

So I moved to a V6 on Friday night and very impressed I have been to.

However I stumbled across an issue I think.
I started playing a recorded programme. Then I wanted to look at something in the menus, say it is the Planned Recordings.

I wanted to go back to my programme that was playing in the little window and the remote no longer has the button that has the 2 boxes on it. I tried the back button but that just moved me back in the menus.

How do I get back to programme that is playing uninterrupted?

I ended up pressing live tv and then going back into My Shows and starting the programme again as I could find no way around it.

Anyone else help with this please?

The 'Back' button should allow you to do what you want, although it may take one or two presses to reverse back out to the recording.

Re: V6 missing remote button and can't find an alternative.

A possible work around would seem to be to press the guide button, which takes you from the planned recording page or whichever menu you are in to the guide and then press guide again which restores the full view of the recording you are watching.  Not ideal but it works on the TiVo so I assume would work on the V6.

Thanks guys I will try them both when I get back home later.
It's not often I do what I did but there was a need for that button so found it weird to be removed and not just moved like the mute button.
