'Watch now' button in Program Details for currently showing programme

Asked by piginabox on 2010-07-06

Firstly, thanks for all involved in Me TV. It's just what I've been after as MythTV is overkill for me.

When I click on a programme title in the EPG I can the 'Program (sic) Details' window which has a 'Close' and 'Record' button.
If the programme is currently in progress could there also be a 'View Now' or 'Watch Now' button?
It seems a little counter-intuitive to have to click the 'Channel Title' rather than the programme in progress.

Just an idea. Thanks for reading.

OS:Ubuntu
Me-TV version 1.3

When I first showed this to my wife she said the same thing about it being counter-intuitive so I have an interest in finding an elegant solution to this. To date, I have failed but she seems to understand the channel thing now. Your suggestion is really not that hard and I guess that it makes sense. I'll have a go at it.

It was my girlfriend's idea as she too wanted to click the current programme to view it rather than record it. We are very impressed with the quick response and pleased that you are considering it.
Are more suggestions welcome?

Well. I implement things if I can/will use them and if know how to do them. If you want to see a list of things that don't interest me then see the blueprints ;) It is also within your rights to open up a text editor and start changing things. I'll happily include your changes.

This has been implemented in the lp:me-tv/1.3 branch. Please test.
