We’ve started to deploy our latest update to our Virgin TV 360 boxes 📺 and you may have noticed your box being updated, here’s the main differences 👇.
Reduction in duplicated content in the ‘Also available on’ section
The “Also available on” section of the detail page, will no longer refer to ‘BBC iPlayer’ as an additional source where the watch action will already launch BBC iPlayer. The same applies to STV content.
This new function will automatically delete the oldest content when disk space is required for a new recording.
You can toggle the function on and off by visiting ‘Manage Storage’ and change the ‘Auto-delete when space needed’ setting. By default, it’ll be off for existing users but for new installs it’ll be on.
If space is required for a new recording, unprotected recordings will be deleted using this logic:
Watched, oldest to newest recording
Unwatched, oldest to newest
Content that is being watched at the time will not be deleted. And if all content is protected, the recording will fail indicating this as a reason
You can also protect shows and ensure they aren’t auto deleted within the recordings screen, the “Protect from auto-delete” option is accessed via the edit “pencil” icon on the right side of the listing. This only appears when auto delete is turned on.
Comment below and let us know what you think of the latest update 👇.
