    Great that we are able to set the favourite channel order, but is it also possible to apply those same favourites in the live TV CH up and down? (similar to the FVP-5000T)

    Noticed a problem in the new update (but I think it was there before). I was watching a programme and skipped through the first ad break ok. When it came to the next ad break I pressed the > button to skip forward but the programme jumped back to the beginning

    The addition of folders and dates for DLNA is great. Would it not be easier if all preferences were set on the Aura rather than using a folder on the DLNA server? I noticed that the latest episodes of Bloodlands and Unforgotten were not put in the their series folders. Unforgotten had been moved from Monday to Tuesday and I had set up a separate recording as the series recording missed it. Thumbnails are shown on my LG TV and on VLC, but not on my Samsung TVs (2014 models) and my Panasonic Freeview Recorder (used as a DLNA client). Episode information (where provided) is shown on all except my Samsung TVs.
    Changing the order of Favourite Channels did not seem to change the order in the Guide.
    As for the missing record icons, I have Reset Freeview Play to see if that improves matters so I have had to set up all the recordings again.

    Mine updated without intervention. It still says the ethernet is not connected, though, despite having updated by it.
    The favourites were sorted in favourite order, which is better than LCN order.
    I can see the recorded programmes on my PC via the DLNA server.
