When the queue bug is fixed, it would be nice if when I add a new show it goes to the beginning of my queue list.
We will be doing this.
When I select a category say as sci fi like i'm in now looking at, on the main screen when I scroll all the way over to see more and see (116) of shows to pick from it would be nice to add when pressing R1 to skip over if there could be a number or line showing you how far you're in that category looking at shows.
I know we can select a show and look at it and back out to where it left off but say the next day I log in and go back to sci fi , I then have to scroll slow to make sure I don't overlook that show, maybe add some indication of where I left off so then I know where that show was and can find it sooner? So i'm looking at sci fi and press R1 15 times and see kiddy grade. For example it's 1 am in the morning and log off and then the next day I have to scroll slower to make sure I don't pass that so maybe a bar of some kind that shows me where I'm at in my scrolling of shows to look for? Maybe at the top next to where it says sci fi(116) have little dots that go across the top of the screen showing me a new page?
We could paginate the list and display where you are in it, but the order of the Shows in the list changes slightly every day because it's sorted in order of most recently released subscription video.
That last part doesn't make sense so when going to "see more" on any genre when first picking that I see 4 shows listed and the 5th show is kind of cut off the screen, well when I press R1 1 time that should be say page 2 with that indicator of where I'm at in that genre looking at. Just noticed that the 5th show is cut off the screen at times and can't read it and If I press R1 one time it will go to show 6 or the next page and I then have to L3 over 1 to read all the text and then that last show again is cut off the screen!
This is by design. The fifth item is meant to be cut off to show that there is more of the list. Just push the D-pad over to the right after pushing R1. I suppose we could also change R1 and L1 to be skip 4 instead of 5, though.
Same goes to if I go to search and type in say W, when all the shows with W pop up it doesn't tell me how many shows came up with starting with W, why not tell me?
We can add the number of returned results, but if you search for "W", it's not going to display just the shows beginning with W. It's going to display all the shows containing a w in the show name.
It would be nicer when I pick a show say now I pick casshern sins, when I L3 down and starts on continue episode 1, L3 down one time to seasons pick and then to episode 1 selection if they could highlight that a bit better and make it bold to see what I have selected? If I'm on episode selection looking at them there seems to be a white line around the show, make that bolder and thicker so to see them on the TV easier would be nice when sitting on the couch and at times can be hard to see where i'm at.
The video thumbnail in focus also changes size, but yeah, we can look into making that line bigger.
If I pause a show and press circle to back out it it won't back out. Now i start the show again and pause and depending on how fast I pressed circle say 26 times really fast then it backed out or if I press circle slow say 7-9 times pressing circle it then backs out with the show paused how odd?
It's a bug. It's in the known issues thread for PS4.
Fans of this show also watched seems to favor my hero academia, one piece, fairy tail and dragon ball or dragon ball z. I can't find a show without one of those listed on it. I went through 40+ shows in different categories and one of those are ALWAYS listed in a show no matter what shows I've picked so far why is that? In the past it had shows similar to what I picked and what people/fans also like or watched that's similar to X show? That used to be such a good tool to find shows similar to what I'm watching but is pointless now imo!!!
This carousel uses predictive intelligence and bases the shows you see on a bunch of different stuff, including video views. Unfortunately, I don't know what requirements were given to feed how it learns, but it's supposed to start giving you more shows that make sense over time.
Don't ever remove the option when say on the first show in action/adventure if I press L1 to jump to see more tab keep that and never remove that!!!!!!
I had the same reaction when that was added, so don't worry.
When I sign in and go to continue watching and look at shows it doesn't let me press square to add to queue from that screen? If I scroll down to other genres and look at shows it gives me the option to press square but not on the continue watching shows, why is that and there should be a way to do that and not have to select a show on my continue watching list just to add to my queue.
Because the the Continue Watching carousel doesn't list Shows. It lists Videos. Videos can't be added to Queue. You can only add a Show to your Queue from a Show thumbnail. The genre carousels are each a list of Shows, so you can add to your Queue from these carousels.
However, I can add this functionality to that carousel.
When looking in genres it would be nice if they listed how many shows are in each one on that screen rather than me have to press X and open it to find out.
I'll look into it, but I'm concerned that it will affect performance on that screen and that it will mean updating the other apps, so that the experience is consistent.
