Microsoft are asking for feedback on the channel logo / text placement in the Media Center guide in Windows 7.  Now is your chance to speak!

Travel to TGB for your chance to give your opinion.

Maybe decided it wasn't prudent to be asking for feedback on a version that most people hadn't seen yet...

I've gone back to channel names for now anyway.  As they stand the logo's just don't look right with all the blank space.

How's your guide going now Satch?

Personally I think the logos are just too small to be useful.  But I'm happy with the size of the guide itself, so using just channel names is just fine and dandy with me.

As far as the guide goes, I haven't been able to get past the gate keeper of my HTPC yet, so haven't given BSE a go thus far.

She's at a friend's place tonight but I've just come home from a night on the lash so I don't think I'm in any state to give it a go right now.  It's just not staying still enough for me to catch it.

Thanks for the instructions though Rusty, I'll probably get a chance to get to them this weekend.

FYI: I ended up reverting back to beta functionality. General consensus was that having number callsign and logo didnt look as good.

I dont know what happened with the email thread on TGB - I know the site was down for a while maybe thats what was being referenced above.
