    Please put the Red Button (and HD) schedule on here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/tv/guide because when it's only here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/17151954 it's difficult to plan ahead. On the TV guide it's much simpler for your viewers to see what's on the channel(s) minute by minute and not to miss out. I nearly missed the excellent coverage of the ladies' triathlon from London (shame about the mist though, spoiling the HD effect, a little), which you didn't even tweet about before it started.

    Yes - wholeheartedly agree with Paul above. It's great that the BBC utilise the red button as almost another channel, but we need to know what's on it and when. Prompted by the fact that MotoGP is being 'bumped off' the TV onto red button all this weekend, have the BBC considered a dedicated sports channel?

    And please, for the nth time of asking, update each and every one of the lists on http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pressred/2009/05/pagenumberlist.shtml.

    And instructions of accessing the SD version of Testcard W on Freeview Red Button wouldn't come amiss.

    Come to think of it, might they be linked in to a new FAQ under the Red Button category: many thanks for revamping those, by the way: they are much clearer to follow in their present form.

    The Elton John concert was great, but why on earth has it now been edited down! It was only an hour long and the whole concert should be reinstated immediately on the red button. The adverts on Radio 2 are still saying that you can watch the whole concert. I know people who missed the first broadcast and would like to watch it in full.

    Definitely you need to shout louder about your service! Just saw the Sound of the Cinema concert and more from the Proms. Its the first time I've realised it's possible to access cultural content as well as sport from the red button, only because I heard the announcement. I'm gutted not to have known you had performances from the Edinburgh Fringe on too a few weeks ago. Is there somewhere more clear, prominent and integrated into the rest of BBC schedules, advertising etc... where you can see what's going on through the press of the RED! More people need to know, for such content to expand and continue to be supported surely? With theatres now filming shows these could go on here too (esp the public funded theatres) Keep up the good work, and now I know I'll keep me eye out! Thanks J

    Hi, I'm the Duty Editor for Red Button services. Thanks for your comments about listings for Red Button, @Jonathanbaden, @paul_geaton and @JulieTwist. It's something we've been looking at enabling and hope to deliver in the future.
