Was wondering if there was a way to enable the channel numbers in the Live TV Channel guide on android? I have a lot of channels, searching them hangs up the server and scrolling through them I can easily get lost as to where I am in the lineup.

It will show channel numbers on larger screens. We don't currently show them on phone layouts. We'd have to rethink the design a little bit in order to do that. Thanks.

Thanks for the prompt response. I have noticed the numbering on my fire sticks and web interface devices. Android tablet suffers from lack of channel numbering also. Usually only need this feature when i am trying to setup a recording. Navigating to the channel itself via the channel tab could work if when selecting the channel the guide and listing information is incorporated in that?

 

I am not a developer so I am not sure how much time and thought it would take to reconsider designs like this, just some feedback from an end user pov.

You can also use to search feature to search for a channel or a specific program.

It's really just a question of what the layout would look like and what the trade-offs would be.

I have tried the search feature, but with the current load times of the Guide, searching can hang up the server. Regardless if I terminate the search when I realize its beginning to freeze, it will stay frozen for a set amount of time until the search is complete.

Search performance will be improved with the next release of the server, thanks.
