    This is a very minor issue I’ve noticed (and hopefully an easy fix).

    You have video or TV playing and you go back to BasicHome (horizontal style 2 – menu and ticker at bottom of sceen), the video will continue playing in the small box on the lower right. If you go left or right along the BasicHome menu, the small video will be there for every menu item except the Weather. Video disappears but audio continues.

    This happens with both the “static” weather background and also the “dynamic – weather linked” backgrounds.



    Once again, not a big issue but maybe an easy fix. Sorry if this has been brought up before, I did try to search for it.

    I turn off the video overlay on the weather option as the weather images overwrite the video, just checked and was a bit too keen as there is enough room on that menu style for both.

    This has been fixed and will be in the next patch.

    thx

    It's possible that this is done intentionally because if you have the 5 day forecast on your basic home screen there isn't room for the video preview as well.

    Yes, but for horizontal there is enough room so we have fixed it for that.

    It would be nice to have a fix for people who aren't using the 5-day forecast as well. I recently noticed that the weather indicator in the top right corner is also missing on the Weather page. It's a little ironic that I can see the weather on every menu item except for Weather!

    Or maybe I'm the only one not using the 5-day forecast? It is just too cluttered for my taste -- spoils the nice scenery of the backdrop. :)

    Good point, then summary should only be hidden if using full 5 day weather, will fix it for the next patch.

    Cheers
