As the subject says.

Is this on purpose?   :(

Yep weird.  Also in the 'Coming Soon' tab I can't tell which programs I have selected as the Red circles no longer appear besides the programs.

We are working on these teething issues with the new website design, and the coming soon issues has now been fixed.

So this mobile-centric layout is what the site is supposed to look like?

Why?

Yep...ta.  Minor issue still...every program on the 'Coming Soon' tab seems to be partly created in Belgium?  ;D

While are still tweaking some of the stylings at the moment, we have gone in this direction to start to bring all of the IceTV interfaces in line with each other.

On the 'Manage Shows' tab, the Keyword Record/Favourite editing does not appear to work.  I can modify the bottom one but not the six above it.

Hi Dave,

Please get in contact with support so they can get some additional details so we can check out the issue.

How do I say this without being rude...?! I'm not sure that I can!

I have to do settings for somebody weekly of up to 10 or 12 programs sometimes. What used to take me a minute or two now takes ages!

Did anybody do any useability testing of the UI before launching it? It's incredibly cumbersome now, a massive step backwards. On the old system, I could select the desired recording device, click the program, change series to single and that was it. If there was a requirement to do the same show again it was still there the search results, so I could repeat that process. Simple, elegant, consistent.

Now, I have to select which device each time, as it defaults to the first device - why? Then I have to go through a bunch of other options that all default badly for my needs. Was any consideration given to which might be the more likely defaults? Perhaps it was and I am at odds with the majority, fair enough. But why not allow me to save the defaults to suit my needs? Or even save them from one program selection to the next. It is so frustrating to have to go through half a dozen dropdowns for every program, and completely unnecessary. Its hard to believe that it could be implemented so badly!

Please can we get this reviewed and give some consideration to better handling of defaults? Thanks.

In the Coming Soon and Manage Shows tabs, I see a white bar under each entry for a Southern Cross Ten program (ACT guide, Firefox 31.0 browser). I suspect that it's because the line wraps with the long name.

Elsewhere in the guide, this service is called simply SC Ten.

I find the text too small and the choice of colours harder to read.  UI's don't have to be the same on different devices.  I used the (old) web version even on my iPad because it was easier to use than the mobile one.

This seems to have been fixed now (only just looked), by renaming it to "SC 10" in those pags. Elsewhere it's "SC Ten".

Hi prl,

These inconsistencies have been fixed up.

We have done a lot of tweaking of the guide pages over the past couple of weeks and have taken on board the feedback we have received.
