      Not as easy as Sky +

      Sky Q is not as simple as sky+ when changing channels. If I want to change channel, I have to go back to start point and go through all the steps again. When are sky going to sort out the arrow keys so we can change channel without having to go back to the guide.

      What do you mean!!!!!
      Just use the arrows keys to go up or down or even enter the channel number
      It's not that hard while you are watching tv

      You have to press select first to get the onscreen menu and then you can use the arrow buttons.

      It riles me that I cannot immediately get to the TV Guide with one press. Oh, the good old simple way...

      Yes getting to the TVguide is a pain



      You are correct on the pressing select first to use the arrows keys, but you can use the arrow buttons to the right of the record button to go up or down while watching tv

      Hopefully that will add a setting where you can change what menu the 'Home' button takes you to.
      For instance I would like it to take me straight to the TV Guide.........

      Agreed Speccy 48 - I also would have liked it a bit larger for my big hands, buttons appear to have been cramped all together and not much thought put into the placing of them. Might just be my big hands !!
      Hard to find buttons in dark sometimes - seem to be in the wrong place for me.
