thought for improvement of youtube app
the new updated youtube app looks much nicer and more advanced than the older more simple one, except for one major flaw that impacts its usability.
when using the onscreen keyboard to type in search terms the app auto searches after every key input. this is an intensive process that taxes the televisions meagre 250 mhz cpu causing an onscreen freeze. this short freeze gives me a 3 to 5 second lag between entering letters into the search box. this has taken me upwards of 5 minutes to type a 4 word search string.
the app can be vastly improved by either disabling the auto search function altogether or by giving it a 2 second pause after the last onscreen movement on the key entry area.
even on the powerful xbox 360 they give you a good 2.5 second pause after the last onscreen movement before searching for your keywords, the hardware in this television is much less powerful and is definitely not set up to provide a smooth experience of rendering your results on screen constantly while you are typing.
