            to_call = "self.openEPGSearch()"
        print graph_yellow, "maps to function", to_call

    Looks like I missed a few of bbbuk commits https://github.com/davesayers2014/en...6b5310f7bb7ea4

    Only issue I had to # #self['dialogactions'] lines.

    Which has one array repeated 4 times.
    Just create it once and use it 4 times...

    Unfortunately, it was overuled by some in Vix!

    If I remember correctly there was even a poll and it was very popular but thread was ultimately closed.

    I do know there is at least one member who did try to keep mod upto date with changes within Vix.

    It was discussed, as a team, the decision was no.

    It is definitely bad hacking out code that has been added to the image instead of adapting code. All images allow users to select bouquets within the G-EPG. It is the TV button on OEA images. PLI uses bouquet/Ch+/-

    bbbuk always used to add debug to indicate it was his file in use. Saved so much messing around with identifying issues.

    Can we change "Add Timer" to "Record" and "Add AutoTimer" to "Record Series"? for regular users who are used to regular boxes coming to OpenViX is a big leap to take. How would a regular user know what Add AutoTimer means?

    You've already had answers to the same question you asked a few days ago.

    "timers" have always been used for recordings for as long as I can remember.

    I used to have a Sony C9 Betamax recorder.... 1982 Review... "From the consumer point of view the C9 is a stylish front loading machine which has a 9 event 14 day timer...".

    Autotimer doesn't mean just record a series! It can be used to search for a programme name that hasn't appeared in your EPG yet, perhaps in 3 to 6 months time. Also Add Timer can be used to record a series (if episodes are reapeated an the same time daily/weekly)

    Like most boxes I've owned some of the terminolgy is different to what I've owned previously but I've soon got used to the functionality of a new box and the terminology it uses. For instance on a previous (non Enigma2/Openvix) box similar functionality was referred to as PowerSearch, SeriesSearch and TextSearch. All 3 could be used to automatically set timers in the future and 2 modes allowed recording a series). Autotimer contains the functionality of most of the PowerSearch and TextSearch. Series search on my previous box used a facility not available in Openvix. OpenVix already has a "record" function and a Power timer, albeit the latter is not necessarily related to recording programmes.

    Add Autotimers can be much more powerfull than the simple "Record Series" as implemented on lesser Freeview/Freesat branded boxes.

    and how did you discover this new terminology? how did you find out for yourself what AutoTimer means?

    Personally, by clicking on the button and seeing what the options were. Then it was obvious what it was.

    how can you know what the programme title is going to be 3 to 6 months in advance?

    The Power timer only works when a channel is being watched. If the EPG, settings or a plugin is open then the Power timer does nothing.

    I often leave my autotimers in place after a series has finished. It will automatically pick up the next series without having to bother.
