360 and TV Go - how to set recordings??

Are you supposed to be able to schedule recordings & series links  on TV360 via the TV Go app? It looks like it but it is not an option on most channels, and certainly isn't obvious if so. 

Searching for programmes & setting Series links on my phone (either in the house or when out so you don’t miss something) on the Tivo was a good function.  Is this another backwards step for the 360 platform?

Thanks for any input

No, simply press on an item in the Guide on the Virgin TV Go app and then the three dot icon to get the option to set recordings:

If you tap on that title in the show details you can also get a full screen version with the same options

Re: 360 and TV Go - how to set recordings??

What about from the search results though? For example - I’ve searched for Saturday Kitchen Live. Hit three dots on one of the results. Options are 

watch onTV

watxh list

share 

- so, No option to record  

??????!

Re: 360 and TV Go - how to set recordings??

The search is picking up both On Demand episodes and those coming up that can be recorded.

If you go into the search result, the first one that it's linking to is the one from yesterday - via iPlayer. The search result options match those for the On Demand content.

If you select next week's episode that's then available to set as a recording.

Where a search result isn't available as inclusive On Demand too, then the 'three dots' from search do show a recording option. 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance' is only a recordable show for instance.

Re: 360 and TV Go - how to set recordings??

Thanks  but back to my question -  when I’m watching (what I am told is) a recording it is [REMOVED] quality like poor streaming and pixelated. It is not a HD recording. 

also - I’m on about in the TV Go app specifically?

Trying to edit the above post but can’t. (Pixelated recordings is a separate issue). Still can’t set recordings from search results in TV Go.

Re: 360 and TV Go - how to set recordings??

Tried this myself for Saturday Kitchen Live:

Search using TVGo app:

Tap on second result in list (not the three dots in this case) and scroll down to "more episodes":

Tap on three dots on next week's episode and you can set it to record:
