[access-uk] Re: Audio described programs on iPlayer

Amro,

Yes, that's what I do.  It's not the easiest of things to set a recording,
though you can do it from the remote if you memorise how and have a TV guide
to hand, or, if you only want to record one show at a time, from the web or
via a text message. Playing back programmes is also a matter of memory as of
course there's no spoken feedback with Sky, but it's one key for the TV
guide, another to get to your recordings, cursor to one you want and a
double press of select to play it. My box records them in date order, but I
don't have HD or anything so don't know if this is a constant.

I quite happily record and play many things, but there's no way I can
remember everything that's on there now as some of it goes bacck quite a
while.  It's only a few keypresses to get the latest one, though, so as an
aid to recall I tend to go backward through the list rather than from the
top. Of course if you noted down exactly what you'd recorded somehow you
could just count presses.  I'm just not that organised.

I wish the Sky Talker read this info.  Until a digibox firmware update comes
along this isn't even possible, and I'm doubtful as to whether or not it'll
happen soon, if at all.

Sean.

No Sean, that is quite helpful. Thank you.
 
So you add the series to your Sky plus recording list or whatever it is
called, and your digital box then records the episodes automatically when
they are aired? I may consider upgrading to Sky plus if that is the case.
Still though, why the damn every simple task has to be an elaborate project
for us. *frustrated*
 
Cheers,
Amro

        Amro,
        
        I've found that many a series on iPlayer  is missing at least one
episode
        described, even when that episode has been described on air.  I've
never
        received a satisfactory explanation from the BBC as to why this
should be,
        despite numerous enquiries when series have been running.
        
        I have Sky+ now, and simply use that instead.  I'm at least
guaranteed my
        audio description that way.
        
        Not of much help to you I know, but at least you're not losing your
marbles.
        
        
        Sean.

        Hello all,
         
        Does it happen that you get TV series half audio described? I mean a
TV
        series with only some of its episodes audio described?
         
        I am trying to find the audio described versions of the current
episodes of
        Reggie Perrin and Being Human on BBC iPlayer but they don't seem to
be
        there. Unless I am going senile, I am sure last week's instalments
were
        audio described!
         
        Sorry if this is a basic question but, believe it or not, I started
paying
        attention to the audio description feature only very recently. I
gave audio
        description a go a couple years back but found it to be intrusive. I
tried
        it again in the past few weeks but I am finding it to be very useful
this
        time!
         
        Any thoughts?
         
        Cheers,
        Amro
