You won't see this with shows that you haven't touched yet (in addition to the fact that it will specify "new" on the recordings list).
Isn't this adequate?
Hey, thanks for replying. Here's a good example of a feature people don't know they could love
if they haven't actually had it. And once you've had it and used it extensively, as I have on older DVRs, you kind of become spoiled. (I must
count jump-to points as such a feature.) As far as the little bar
is concerned, for me, it's really nice to be able to see something at a glance and not have to actually click a bunch of times to see it. A few examples:
- I've watched an episode nearly to the end and I'm done with it, but I don't want to delete it immediately. I stop it before it reaches the end and resets (on my old Sony it jumps to the beginning). Now, the little bar next to each episode shows me whether I've watched (nearly) none of it, half of it, or pretty much all of it. It was a nice convenience.
- When you're checking out the INFO on a bunch of shows, whether recorded or in the Guide, having to turn ON and OFF the info bar/window/whatever repeatedly
simply adds up to a waste of time!
- I'm sure there are more examples not coming to mind right now.
You ask whether it's adequate. Well, yes. Maybe it is. Or maybe you've had better and now adequate
just ain't good enough. I hope that doesn't make me sound too
Well, would you look at the time!
