Just a ridiculously simple feature request from an exasperated parent.
The next episode autoplay feature needs to be able to be switched off.
Kids TV programmes are just a few minutes long, and have multiple episodes aired in a row. Invariably it autoplays to the next episode in the middle of an episode which means I literally have to pay attention to click no on the pop up.
It only happens on recordings. On demand works perfectly.
I picked a few shows at random and wrote down what happens in the table below - there is a clear pattern that the autoplay next episode popup comes up (12 seconds before) the 5 minutes or 10 minutes exactly into the recording. I also noticed that with Peppa Pig and Yakka Dee the amount of time remaining in the episode (after i click 'NO' to the autoplay pop up) is roughly equivalent to how long it is before the actual episode starts into the recording (i.e. how much of the adverts/previous episode was on before this episode starts).
Please note that this happens with EVERY single episode of these shows I have recorded, I just picked some at random to write down.
So clearly it is just a simple timing issue. However as we cannot get the option to switch autoplay off, its really, REALLY annoying. Such a simple fix - give us the option!
Alternatively, just have the default option as 'NO', then we don't have to make a quick scramble for the remote control, or not notice the pop up and then miss the end of that episode.
