Hi all,

Part one of my 'switch over' is on Wednesday and I would just like to ask a quick question. I have a PVR and want to know when I re-tune my 'box' will I lose all the pre-programmed schedule (i.e will I have to put the programs that I want to record in the box again).
Thanks in advance for any replies.

I can't understand what all the fuss is about with regards to this channel going 'on-line' only. I watch the channel but mainly on catchup, given the age demographic that this channel is aimed at, I think the BBC is 'playing smart' (for once), in the fact that the channel is aimed at the 'smart' generation in the fact that they watch in a variety of digital ways, eg tablet, smartphone, computer etc, I for one is not annoyed or frustrated that this decision has been taken, I will carry on watching, and from what I have read they are going to be 'exciting new developments' with regards to the new 'on-line only' channel.

I believe that in 5 or 10 years time more and more of our TV will be watched on-line and the TV as we know it today will be obsolete as our viewing habits will be change unequivocally.

Having used subtitles for years, I now am frustrated when I watch something on youtube and there is no subtitles, that unless it is something that I have watched before and know the script almost (off pat), then I don't watch it. I wear hearing aids, thus need subtitles, otherwise the TV would be 'quite loud', but even if I do wear them in the house, sometimes accents, etc prohibit me from actually be able to understand what is being said, thus subtitles are needed when I am wanting to watch something (not background noise like (shopping telly).
No I am grateful that in this country that we have a good fairly robust subtitle system, just wish that ITV and Channel 4 were as 'up to speed' as BBC when watching tablet version of programs as, as yet subtitles are not on any on C4 and very few on ITV.
