This assumption that everyone wants to do everything through mobile phones really **bleep** me off.
I spend most of my online time on a proper PC. I just don't see the point in removing something that many people used. I mean there surely could have been little difference or little effort expended in supporting it versus supporting the mobile app.
Although admittedly (and now not being as flippant as my first sentence), it can be a bit flaky and slow to initially connect, and sometimes takes a couple of refreshes, but once it's done that first connection to your home TiVos (V6s in my case) then it works fine and I can move around Planned Recordings, My Shows, etc. quickly.
As a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share my knowledge. I don't work for Virgin Media.
