I have a few minor issues with it but I certainly wouldn't go back to Sky+HD.

I didnt ask if you were loving it.
I'll assume from your pointless little dig that it does use those blocks.

You can actually have your recordings in a list although only by selecting A-Z.

I dont give a toss what you see or dont see. Do you actually have anything useful to post on the subject ... probably not.

Ah, of course, now I've dug a little deeper, it makes sense - I should have guessed.

The interface was designed by a 3yr old ,it is shocking the amount of moves you have to do to get anywhere in the menu.Hopefully a redesign will be included in an update after some user feedback

Re: Sky Q ....likes and dislikes

The touch remote seems to get me exactly where I want with the least little effort , plenty hate the touch remote however I much prefer it. I agree if you use the traditional remote moving about could be considered a pain.

In terms of niggles. I like to download things in SD due to slow BB but use HD if recording off TV which I have set in the preferences but this means that all the recordings suggested off-air are SD too. Now you can just go to other showings to choose HD but it is annoying as you forget sometimes.

That poor picture quality you get still on some channels.

HDR live TV standards hadn't been ratified at launch I'm not even sure they have now , however Sky say they are confident the specs will be completed in a way that will work with its chips.
