My old(ish) Humax Fox can search for programmes in the EPG by name
(actually substring) or genre, and also has an (annoying) recommendation
feature (that I can't turn off). So what's new?

Presumably you will be able to search for programmes on the "catch-up"
services as well as future broadcasts.

That was my assumption too. The problem with Panasonic is that they have
never had the facility to search an EPG! Even my now-defunct Humax 9200T
could do that 10 years ago.
