Recording retrospectively on 360

Hi

We had V6 a few years ago and could scroll back 2 weeks and point and click to record any missed programmes.  Now back after a bad experience with Sky Q I'm very disapointed that that feature appears to be no longer available.  Am I correct? How can I record retrospectively?

Why do these experts insist on messing around with things which were perfectly fine? 360 is not as good as V6 - the old interface was way superior too.

thank you for any thoughts

Sorry but the extent of the backward Guide is the same on both TiVo/V6 and the new TV 360 - one week.

Re: Recording retrospectively on 360

No not the retro guide, what I meant was that on the V6 I could record from last week's programm list but on 360 I cannot

Re: Recording retrospectively on 360

Please be clearer. What are you actually trying to do that you could on V6 but can’t on TV 360?

Re: Recording retrospectively on 360

Apologies.  On the V6 I could scroll back to the programme list of the previous week, select one, hit record and it's job done.  On the 360 I can go back and view the list of programmes from last week but if I try to record one I get a message that the programme has already aired, ie I cannot record.  Also, I just thought - on the V6 if you switched on and started watching a programme which was half way through you could record the whole thing from the beginning, you can't do that now.  Let me know if that makes sense, thanks

Re: Recording retrospectively on 360

I’m not sure how you can record something that’s already been broadcast. Isn’t that what the TV 360 is telling you?

You are correct that V6 could record a program that had already started but only if the program was on a channel already connected and buffering, a maximum of 6 channels.

TV 360 has a facility called Startover, on about 30 channels, which allows you to watch a program that has already started from the beginning. I’m not sure if this is watch only or whether you can record from beginning on these channels. I’ll do a test when I get a chance.
