Recording the radio on 360

So after 20 something years with sky my lovely dad was persuaded to move over to Virgin by a chap who cold called him, I said he’d be fine with Virgin as I have it and have always found it great, however, what he’s been signed up to is 360 and it is so different to my TiVo that I’m actually struggling to help him with it! 
all he wants to do is record radio programs, which he could do with sky and I can do on TiVo but we are absolutely stumped with this thing! Can anyone tell us what we are doing wrong please?

Re: Recording the radio on 360

The 360 software does not currently allow recording of radio. I also used to do this on the TiVo & V6 and miss it and hope it will be added to the 360 functionality again, but I’m not holding my breath.

Re: Recording the radio on 360

You probably aren't doing anything wrong, the radio stations used to have dedicated channel number the same as TV, now you listen through an app and can't record anymore. That's 360 / Horizon software not Tivo.

Re: Recording the radio on 360

Thank you for the reply, he’ll just have to get up and listen to the archers on a Sunday morning instead, at least I can stop searching for it now! 
thanks again

Re: Recording the radio on 360

Sadly at 75 and suffering with advanced Parkinsons explaining ‘apps’ is something that is quite difficult, the whole set up of the 360 is quite trying to be honest, I’ll be glad when he can walk back to sky, thanks for the reply.

If he is still in the 14 day cooling off period he can cancel and go back to Sky now.

I appreciate apps may be difficult, but you can get The Archers at anytime on the BBC sounds app on the 360. Using the voice controls you just need to say “BBC Sound app” to bring it up. Unfortunately once in the app BBC Sounds doesn’t support voice controls, yet.

Apps is the way most things are going, even BP and Shell are pushing apps for buying fuel on their forecourts.
