This has reeeeely been irking me... (I was hoping SOMEBODY at boxee would figure it out on their own..apparently not. So now I have to rant)
And its the view for TV shows.
I harken back to the good 'ol days of 188.8.131.5243 to make my point.
Here we have the new and shiny 1.5
Icon are small..no visible description until you choose the episode.
A terrific waste of real estate...not well thought out at all.
(I never want to meet the moron that said "HEY! Thats the perfect view for episode listings!!")
(If I recall..the view was garbage in 1.4)
Now..we go back into the deep dark past of 184.108.40.20643 where we have this.
Aaaahhh...to chose your show..and to easily scroll thru nice big pics and a synopsis of the show..
Those were the good 'ol days....when it was effective and displaying content.
HEY BOXEE!! PLEASE BRING BACK THIS VIEW!!!!
Aside from the laundry list of better things about 1.0.x,** this is something I've not heard anybody bark about. Hence my lil rant.
So..consider this just another 'point' regarding the 'ol adage about boxee... One step forward..two steps back.
Who the hell is the GUI designer? Some dumbazz that just roll in with a degree from Haaaaaaavard??
Come on Boxee!! WTF?!?! Why must you keep screwing things up???
** Why I still run 220.127.116.1143.
No sudden audio increases with netflix.
I can keep it running for DAYS..and it doesnt crap out.
No smb issues whatsoever.
Still has a ZOOM you can fine tune
Faster scraping (subjective observation when I add lots of new content to the media server)
Volume control just 'works'.
Episode listings 'work'..no goofy stuff thats been reported about newer FW.
A search bar that shows what is buffered ahead.
And A few other things that I can't recall off the top of my head. (Which I may add later. Hence my EDIT times. )
