More space for info text in List-View

MasterTom99
Hello,

I just started to test RTVHD and I am pretty impressed. I am using the List-View. At the bottom of the window there is the info text for each episode. This space is not big enough for me. I can only see the first sentence or two of the description. I would prefer, to see much more of this.
Is it possible to make this space user defined? Best case would be to handle this similar to the List Width, that can be configured in the settings by a slider.

So long,
Tom

That is a good idea. I'll add it to the list.

Thanks!

Hello,

when one episode is selected, the space for the info is even smaller (the page with the PLAY button). Maybe in this view, the button should still show the infos. This would left more space for the pictures and the PLAY DELETE FAVORITE buttons on the left side.
For me, it is no problem to cover the background picture, because the menu is transparent.

Btw, best solution for the size of the info space would be "dynamically". The size could be increased, if more infos are available. If only few infos are availabe, you could shrink it. But this is only low priority wish ;-)

So long,
Tom

The latest beta increases the space for the description on the episode screen (especially when using poster view)... If you aren't trying out the beta, I would recommend it.

Hello,

I tried actual beta version. The info area is slightly bigger in poster view, but still not big enough to cover the whole text. And I prefer the list view.
So I will wait for the next beta version patiently ;-)

So long,
Tom

You must have a skinny left column :)

Or maybe the infos in germany are more detailed? Here is one example:

Lach- und Sachgeschichten, heute mit einer nahtlosen Erfindung, mit einer fast funktionierenden Maschine, mit einem Foto auf der Tasse, mit Shaun als Fotograf - und natürlich mit der Maus, der Ente und dem Elefanten.

Eine über 100 Jahre alte Erfindung - Wieso hat das Rohr keine Naht? Was rund sein soll, das muss zusammengehalten werden, sonst fliegt es wieder auseinander. Das gilt für zusammengerolltes Papier genauso wie für ein Metallrohr. Erst durch die Erfindung zweier Brüder aus Remscheid wurden Rohre aus Stahl so richtig stabil. Das Maus-Team zeigt an einem Knetmodell, wie heißes Metall so bearbeitet werden kann, dass es fest zusammenhält und am Rand keine Naht hat. In vielen Fabriken, Lokomotiven, Fahrrädern und großen Gebäuden auf der ganzen Welt kommt die über 100 Jahre alte Erfindung zum Einsatz - zum Beispiel am neuen Bahnhof von Lüttich.

Krawinkel & Eckstein: Erfindung Krawinkel, der Vogel, wird Opfer seiner eigenen Beeren-Pflückmaschine: Er hat sie erfunden, um hoch hängende Holunderbeeren zu ernten. Immer größer wird die Maschine, bis der Hund Eckstein sie versehentlich einschaltet - und Krawinkel von seiner eigenen Erfindung gepflückt wird ...


I think this will only fit in a big horizontal area. Or the text should be scrollable with the remote controller.

You must be right.... pretty much all of my episode descriptions are 2 or 3 sentences at most. I'll look into a scrollable text solution. Thanks

I've added a few options that you might like... please test them out if you can:

1. Can adjust the height of the info bar at the bottom.
2. The episode description is now scroll-able
