My internet is out and I’m trying to watch some channels recordings or live TV but the app didn’t want to start at all. I killed it and restarted but it just says “Loading...”
I ended up doing something else and came back and it finally loaded. BUT there are some issues. You can’t tell what any of the recordings are because none of the art is shown and all of the boxes show up empty. If I hover over the boxes I can sort of use it. But Up Next is useless because it just says “Season 3, Episode 1” underneath. No idea what show. Recently recorded is better because you can at least see the show name when you hover. But when I go into the show, again there are no images for the recordings.
I think Channels should work perfectly without internet, since it records over the air. And if the internet is out, it is the go to app since you can’t watch Netflix or Hulu etc.
I suggest the following:
- Update the DVR functionality to archive recording art on the DVR so the internet is not required for screenshots etc.
- Improve loading time by loading whatever is being loaded on launch asynchronously in the background.
