I'm using only the tuner in DScaler :) But I agree that switching to the
tuner is easy... another thing is that the channels menu is useless for me
(I've more than 78 channels defined, and the menu is very big.. I have to go
to the end of menu and press on the arrow to scroll the channels list.. What
do you think about another window with the channel information (like the
channel setup) where you can select the channel and maybe change some
information? in the menu you can have the option to access this menu.. I
think it will be more usefull than the very big list (in my case, and I think
another ones)... maybe improving this menu for channel selecting will be the
best choice (IMHO)..
mmh, think about this: when you enter this menu, you have the menu list (the
left side), with a button like "configuration", and then opening the right
part with all the parameters? Is it hard to implement?
