right now on the main menu you use the same icon for
radio and music. You also use the same icon for videos
and recorded shows...

perhaps you can change the radio icon to this icon (the
headphones) http://www.snapstream.
com/images/Products/beyondmedia/Beyond%20Media%
20Screen%20Shots/mainmenu-music.jpg

perhaps you can change the video icon to this icon (the
camcorder) http://www.snapstream.
com/images/Products/beyondmedia/Beyond%20Media%
20Screen%20Shots/mainmenu-videos.jpg

another suggestion is to have a home button (using the
home icon in Beyond tv) in every internal page so a user
can select that home icon and press ok to return to the
main menu.

another suggestion is to group the videos and record
shows into one just videos and have it use the same
template as record shows (have the information of the
show, the option to delete , etc.)

another suggestion is to add comics... maybe in the web
page one of the default can be comics see http://www.
gbpvr.com/images/small-comics.jpg and http://dwlt.
net/tapestry/
you can arrange it in the following way main menu > web
options > Comics > different comic pages

another suggestion is to make the weather icons larger
for example http://www.gbpvr.
com/images/small-weather.jpg
you can have multiple weather pages...
weather page one shows current conditions...
weather page two shows morning, afternoon, night
conditions for the day,
weather page three shows 5 day forecast,
weather page four shows Doppler 100 (http://www.
weather.
com/maps/local/local/us_close_nyc_ultra_nyc_metro_nyc
/1a/dopplerradar100mile_large_animated.html),
weather page five shows Doppler 600(http://www.

com/maps/local/local/us_close_nyc/1a/index_large_anima
ted.html),
weather page six shows satellite of region (http://www.
weather.
com/maps/local/local/us_close_nyc_ultra_nyc_metro_nyc
/1a/northeastusvisiblesatellite_large_animated.html)
you can arrange it in the following way main menu > web
options > weather > the six pages

another suggestion is to have a reviews page...
one page that reviews new movies
one page that reviews new music releases
one page that shows zagat reviews (http://www.ny1.
com/ny/NY1ToGo/Story/index.html?
topic=4&subctopic=53&contentintid=42003)
you can arrange it in the following way main menu > web
options > Reviews > the three pages

another suggestion is to have more news pages...
you can arrange it in the following way main menu > web
options > News > various pages
for example see the different things here http://www.rr.
com/flash/index.cfm

another suggestion is to have the option for
miscellaneous pages
you can arrange it in the following way main menu > web
options > miscellaneous > various pages
examples:
http://www.ny1.com/ny/NY1ToGo/Story/index.html?
topic=4&subctopic=53&contentintid=42003
http://nyctmc.org/xmanhattan.asp
http://www.nylottery.org/ny/nyStore/cgi-bin/indexnew.

another suggestion is to have menu icons bigger, have
the text bigger and make it bold

and finally have the option to change channels using the
remote's keypad or ch up/down buttons

    one more thing can there be a sleep timer so that it turns the
    mvp off after say
    .5 hours,
    1 hour,
    2 hours,
    4 hours,

    the user can then select all the options to have it turn off
    after 7.5 hours or a combination of options, save 1.5 hours,
    etc.
