Topic: 2.6.54 Channel Selection: Too many steps?
After getting used to the channel menu on my Chumby with the insider release Control Panel, I find the extra step to change channels irritating.
From a UI perspective, I think it's more than possible to integrate the Reload, Change, and Info buttons into the Channel Change menu, particularly since the initial Info menu is effectively exactly the same. I must say the Info menu is a nice addition for people with lots of channels or "guest" users, though.
I also understand the reason for the reload button, but that's either a matter of setting the value of a variable to the current channel upon loading the channel change menu (if you wanted it there), or possibly putting a little reload button under the channel display on the main Control Panel: there's space under the channel display on the front of the "Virtual Chumby."
The extra step just doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Does anyone else agree?
My brother got me the Chumby for Christmas, and it's awesome. I'm amazed at your swift implementation of the music options as well. Good job!
Of course now, I have to learn Flash.
