Thank you to everyone who has been contributing their thoughts to this project. In the end, the best result will only come with your own input and perspectives.The original demos were great
I appreciate and use the demos from the original HT Demo Tree
. As some have indicated, the menu interface in those discs could be improved. Essentially the feedback regarding those discs boils down to:
(1) menus should get out of the way, and
(2) they should look professional and "resemble" the amount of time, effort, and cost we put into our HT spaces.What do YOU want to see?
So, I'd like to ask a few menu related questions of the fine AVS users who LURK beneath the surface (you know who you are).
(Uno) Based on what I've seen/heard, the default menu option that is selected once you arrive at the menu should be "Play All". Yes? No?
(Dos) If you weren't going to hit the "Play All" button/option, would you want to see some sort of category menu? Like LFE, Action, Animation/Kids, etc...
(Tres) From a layout/design perspective, what would YOU want to see?
A direct, thumbnail based option similar to these...
Or a categorical/icon approach, similar to this....
Or a more thematic approach like this....
This is your chance to be heard!
