Really disappointed with Virgin. Just changed from sky. setting reminder s a big part of daily viewing. My wife doesn't believe that u can't just remimd without recording. Surely not beyond virgin technology and engineers. Need to do do it or could lose customers
I doubt very much Virgin Media will lose customers over not having a Remind function.
I could explain why Record and Remind is better and why there is no Remind only function but it has been discussed many times before and if you are interested a simple search will find these previous threads.
You can remind without recording, when the reminder appears you get the option to watch and record or just watch, which cancels the recording. If you're not there to see the reminder then the program will be recorded so you don't miss it, seems a better system to me.
Reminders are really just a legacy from before most boxes could record and I've never really understood why you'd use a reminder rather than recording the program. In order for the reminder to work you have to be sat in front of the TV, so therefore presumably watching something, the reminder pops up and at that point you either have to miss the rest of whatever you're watching or miss the program you've set the reminder for, if you have recordings set then then you can watch as and when convenient (and fast forward the adverts as long as you're far enough behind).
