One thing that I have been waiting for YEARS to get fixed in Navigator Ybsane, is the lack of ability for Navigator to display guide data without overlapping the text when there are more than 5 digits in the Channel ID field when doing a "B button" Show Search.
We have some channels that are abbreviated from 3-5 letters in the station identifier, say for example CBS or that network, or Food for Food Network and the description is fine. But we have OTHER channels with 6-7 identifiers and the text bunches together in show descriptions.
Like we have one of those shopping channels that I think is on must carry status, the Jewelry Network. And it the Time Grid, they show it like this:
Jewelry. If you search in the show list the channel has too many letters in the identifier, so the text overlaps.
If you have something like TWCMPOD, the text will over-lap in show descriptions, because Navigator's search parameters may cause text bunching if the show ID has more than five spaces in the channel field.
This is something that should have been fixed a long time ago, If the powers that be could get information out to local Navigator development managers to reduce their channel letters to no more than five digits, the text overlapping should stop. Is this going to be worked on for the new Navigator release?
I am in Milwaukee Wisconsin and we have a Theme-Based line up with HD channels in the 1000's and some stations that are text-overlapping. Interestingly enough, a relative of mine has an MDN box and I tested this with a couple of channels at his place and there was NO OVERLAP.
Why can't local divisions make the channel abbreviations short enough to fit in Show Search Descriptions? For instance:
Make Jewelry say Jewel?
Change TWCMPOD to MPOD? (we KNOW it's TWC........duh!)
Change ESPN2HD to ESN2HD?
These are just examples.
I want the new guide to fix this!
