Continuing the discussion from Many duplicate recordings:
This applies to appletv too.
When viewing the guide on the web interface, shows or films that have already been recorded show with a little 'play' triangle and ones that are shedules to record have a clock icon.
As discussed in the topic linked to at the start of this post, the problem with iOS and appletv interfaces currently is that there is no indication if something has already been recorded. There is no warning when scheduling a duplicate either.
The result is that it is very easy to make duplicate recordings. These are then a really pain to clear out.
So my feature request is:
Please can we have indicators in the iOS and appletv (presume other apps too) that indicates when a show or movie has already been recorded and exists in the library? I think these icons should appear anywhere where you might schedule a recording:
- on now
With the addition of these icons it at least gives users a chance to avoid multiple recordings. I would ask that ideally these would have little 'HD' symbols adjacent so that you know whether the recording is in HD or not. That would help inform whether to make another recording or not.
