It seems to me that refining the existing UI with a fully functioning remote is priority one. And I want to thank and acknowledge GAB for all contributions he has done to move this remote control issue forward with SD.
And I have always said that just like PAULAZ says... SD needs to have a working grid guide in order to have a fully functioning replacement for all OTA programming. I know that SD likes their Slice guide but every time I demo this product the first complaint is that it dose not have a channel "guide".
Why cannot SD implement the grid guide and allow users to purchase the grid info from "Schedules Direct" like the 123EPG program does for WMC?
One final thought, in addition to my existing SD tuners I also have the Kickstarter ATSC 3.0 tuner and when broadcasters start to send programs in 4k or above (they just demoed a trial with sending 8k on a 6mhz ATSC 3.0 channel) the "guide" or "program list" should have a 4k type sticker or icon attached. That would allow us to demo the SD hardware and software interface showing off its capability to record or play higher resolution program... This could differentiate the product and make it a must buy for anyone with a 4k or 8k display. Bottom line is that if SD is able to fully get these items working they will "OWN" the OTA device market!!!
