    Thumbs up [Proposal] Enhance User Experience in Broadcast Detail View

    Hi,

    I have a proposal for the detail view of a broadcast in the IP-EPG. Since this proposal can be done on server side, I think it's easy to implement.

    Problem:

    In the detail view of a broadcast, the font size of the description is sometimes very hard to read due to the small letters. Especially, if one is sitting e.g. about 4m away from a TV (even at a 55 inch TV it's hard to read). The already implemented zoom function of a webpage (via option key) isn't usable and far away from usability and user experience!

    Suggestion:

    Implement small buttons to increase the font size of the description. Should be only a small script. This could look like the following image (with 3 fixed font sizes):
    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	IP-EPG_detail-view_enhancement.jpg

Size:	141.1 KB

    To be even more flexible one could put other functionality behind 3 small buttons [A-], [A] and [A+], where [A-] should decrease the font size, [A] loads the default setting and [A+] should increase the font size.

    This would enhance the user experience - at least from my point of view!

    The chosen setting should be saved as cookie on the TV.

    @Philips, @all

    What do you think about it? It's a small step, but a giant leap for mank... user experience^^

    Nice, but I would rather have that Philips and Gracenote are going to work on ALL programinfo of ALL channels in Spain/Netherlands so we have a complete EPG.

    Hello again Erik . It has been a long fight, but I give up. I no longer belive in Philips. They're not going to improve their faulty guide. And the worst of all, they are not going to answer when they don´t like the question.

    Hi Toengel,

    I totally agree to your suggestion. As you know I have already suggested a bigger font and have done a poll. But I'm afraid that the engineers at Philips knows better what font Size is best than the users.
    One short message to SmartTV developers: The time of 255-ACSII-video text-pages is over .

    Enjoy your TV, it's fun!
