And it looks like the makers of STB for Freesat are going the same way. Abetted by the BBC offering one button push actions? Red Button, blue button, green button what next?Lets stop this nonsnese now, and get some simplicity into remote controls, I think that 5-6 buttons max should be enough to allow us to use the system with preperly designed on screen menus and fast response.Ok, so I am advocate of the Apple Remote control, as it works on their compputers for media browsing, but after all it is simplicity itself and acheives all you need with 6 buttons.How about it?

I've used mhegenc to compile my apps but this is written for the Freeview MHEG 1.06 profile. Can you give me any more details about MHEGPlus which you describe in the article... more importantly when will I be able to start using it?

This is quite annoying do you have a solution or an explanation please?

Generally, the newer the set top box, the faster it runs.Most boxes made within the last four years or so will perform pretty well.How old is your set top box?

It just doesn't have a zippy feel to me like the old teletext service.Maybe my expectations are too high but even browsing the menus takes seconds to respond to input from the remote.Is this the fault of the hardware boxes? Are some better than others? Is it the use of Java? Or simply the way its meant to be? Wed 01 Oct 2008 14:13:07 GMT+1
