Play TV Hits 1.02

Play TV is wonderful, it really is, although it was previously missing a few vital options, such as the ability to set reminders for future programs, auto-switch channels, that sort of thing.  So imagine our excitement when a 1.02 patch was released yesterday, bringing a whole wad of new features.  Like, er, slightly faster guide response, and support for Italian guide ordering.  And something else to do with the guide, but, bizarrely, no reminders.

So, in what is still pretty much the best Freeview box on the planet, it’s still impossible to set a reminder to switch from Casualty to Eastenders.  Yes, you can record, rewind, even twist time and space itself, but you can’t set a reminder.  Here’s a reminder, Sony, that we need some reminders.  Otherwise, good job.
