    taking timeline and dates into details. Airing today (hours left), Airing tomorrow, Airing in days, hours. or Airing Now (hours, minutes remaining), Duration of show, etc..
    other stuff like user messages when scheduling, canceling, etc..
    i would like to display related shows when viewing a listing, but that's something that likely has to be done on the backend during an epg scan to be done efficiently.

    advanced recording integrated fluidly below the epg item by just toggling it in/out.

    btw, if anyone want to try the ui i'd gladly send it to you, but i would rather not start publishing downloads yet, but for anyone here just send me pm. while its usable, not for "production" use yet. and its just something i just enjoy playing with (code and leaning as a hobby).

    cooking up search (don't mind the odd hue/fuzzy background, it's image compression).

    Been watching from afar but I just got to say I really like it too!

    Do you have any plans in mind yet for the "Now" page? Both the wife and I use it every morning to watch the news on our tablets while getting ready for work.

    you can probably use the new Channels page as a replacement for the old Now page, there are different views, either a grid (as shown further up in the thread) or more flat view like the old Now page (see attached picture) with a few more options, you can play directly from there.

    the new Now page is more for finding shows/movies now, although you can still watch news and wherever else like before, but it's more like a library view with program images. you can also filter out and only show specific programs like News.

    intergrating the record functionality posted earlier into a popup menu window on the search ui.
    this way, if i want to search for something quick i can get search results and do everything on the same page almost as instantly as the search results appear, or click the link instead if im in the mood of using the full page recording ui. soon i will probably be fighting with myself into deciding which one to use

    i wanted to keep the ability to record/cancel/delete/etc without having to open/close menus and instead dynamically disable/enable buttons and/or updating parts of the popup menu. after i started to put my ideas on paper, i discovered these popup modals weren't really designed to be used this way. i guess the twitter developers made them to be like a static page/form. you open it and close it and that's it. it's pulled from the current webpage DOM and if you modify the html elements, what happens if you close and reopen another menu? (ie an EPG listing my case).. it has the previous data.. ugh. then i'd have to reset all the elements back to default before i could create a new/refreshed menu. i'd probably need 50-100 lines of code just to reset all the elements.

    so i solved this problem by not even inserting the menu into the DOM at all. rather store the menu inside a file (like a template) and each time a recording menu is opened, i can pull a new template into the DOM. this way when the menu is opened, i don't have to go in and reset all the values/etc back to default.

    solving it was a doozy without having to rewrite a whole new menu framework (or looking for another framework) to handle the quick recording menus, but it turned out to be pretty simple.

    overcoming this limitation, it has opened up the ability for me to easily implement recording functionality almost anywhere in the UI without having to recopy or rewrite another script to handle it. so for example, when you search, the recording menu and code for the most part, will be the same as when you are not searching, but viewing a channels listing instead, or whatever else in the ui that has epg listing (now page, channels, etc)..

    there is also another plus side of this, much faster loading menus because the code does not have to waste time going in and switching everything back to default before presenting a menu.

    and even more benefits. since the menu template is being dynamically fetched only when needed, it can cache. not to mention that since the menu code isn't in the DOM, the pages will load faster as its size is smaller.

    but wait, there's more. to top if all off, if i want to change the appearance of the menu, i can just change it at one place and the rest of the places the menu is/was used will be the same without having to manually change every place that the menu was hardcoded in.

    maybe i no idea what i'm talking about, but i did stay at a holiday inn.

    when something is airing, the listing itself is a progress bar.
