    Hi, I'm having the following problem:

    When I go to TV and then select search, and select description the screen messes up! :confused:

    With MCE I always searched for the upcomming movies and there was also a short description of the movie.
    Also ther was a star rating... I really love that!



    But hey MediaPoral rocks!

    Can anyone confirm this problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    not handy

    I've checked scheduled> new > search by genre> added tekst "film" (dutch for movie)
    Then I see all the movies.

    But still it is not handy to view the description, 'cause when I push the back button it shows the genre selection screen again. :confused:

    All I would like is a list of movies with a "scrolling description" beneath it.

    Since I'm used to schedule my recordings weeks before this would be a really great improvement of MP.

    Thanks 4 any replies!!!

    I noticed a similar problem when searching through the list of films.
    I.e. when you go to Search, by Genre, Movies/Drama
    In the list that appears the bottom few entries have the currently selected movie's description overlapping, kinda similar to what is shown above but not so extreme.
    I'm using the BlueTwo skin if that makes any difference!

    Skin doesn't matter

    Tried different skins, but that doesn't matter

    Probably there is an error in the main code...

    Strange that noone is experiencing this error.

    The description is very important to me 'cause otherwise I don't know wich movie I'm recording...

    How does the rest of you guys record your movies?

    As I said, I am experiencing a similar problem, although not on such a big scale.

    Please see the attachment for an example.
