Re: Retrieving a show that was missed/accidentally deleted/faulty


Forgot to mention that, as the subject suggests, this should also be offered for shows for which signal failure was detected during the show. Also, whilst delete shows should be kept in the trash for a day, and recoverable from there, information about the deleted shows should be kept for one month, again allowing the user to try to recover the show from online or other sources automatically.

When setting a show to record, Ubuntu should identify whether more than 5 minutes of the programme has been already broadcast. If this is the case it should start recording immediately, but also offer the user the option to have Ubuntu automatically replace the incomplete recording with a full one should it become available online, or be repeated later. This offer should take the form of a dialog box when recording from the guide or a small, semi-transparent (see my rating idea) bar at the bottom of the screen with a simple question and 'Yes' or 'No' answer (to that end, the remote should have Yes and No buttons, since they are commonly useful on a smart TV)


P.S. For both this and the rating idea the bar should be almost identical in size and appearance to the current lens selector bar when viewing the dash maximised.
