Scrolling

Yes I know I am always asking for stuff but that's because I love your software so much :D 

 

Anyway, Is there a reason why I can't scroll backward but only forward. Let's say 

 

0 A B C D E ....Z

 

If I want to go to Z I can only scroll forward. I would like to go backward instead. 0 -> backward Z. It would be easier. The same concept for TV shows episodes. 

 

Episode 1 - 20. It's quicker to scroll backward from 1 to 20.  

 

I hope you understand what I am trying to say. 

 

I am currently watching this show that starts with letter T and has 20 episodes per season. First I have to scroll all the way to T from 0 using the blue button feature to select the letter for  the show. Then go to the episode scroll all the way to 15 from 1. I could of easily scroll backward from 1, 20, 19, 18, etc...

I'm having a hard time visualizing what you are asking.  Almost all chocolate views have infinite wrap-around scrolling.  I think maybe the list view doesn't but all the poster-type views do.

Perhaps I should explain again but try to be clearer. 

 

I am using chocolate view. Posters to be exact in Movies and TV shows but Listing view in episodes. 

 

If I want to watch a show for example call the wire. The letter for that show is 'W'. To get to W I will press the blue button on my remote which brings up the letters 0 to Z. To get to W I have to scroll forward from 0 to W. I can't go backward like 0 Z Y X W. Same concept for episodes. If I want to watch episode 15 from a 22 episodes series. I have to scroll from 0 - 15. With my remote. I can't do 0 22 21 20 19 18 17 16 15. Again I am using a remote. I don't know if it matters.

Okay, so you are talking about the scrolling within the little jump list selector.  I'm not sure if I can make that wrap without it looking goofy.

 

A couple things that may help:

 

1) Turn on the option to automatically jump to the first unwatched item.  If you are watching a series, this will take you right where you want to be.

 

2) You can use the remote control buttons in a triple-tap fashion to move quicker potentially.  For instance '9' once on the remote will scroll you right to "W".  If you want "V" hit '8' three times.  The letters are usually printed right under the numbers on the remote.

 

3) You could install MB Plus and then all this would be moot because it will give you playlists of the next episodes in all the series you are watching right there on a home screen :).

Okay. Whenever you have some extra time see what you can do.

I've done that before but that's only when using my MCE Remote while waiting for my harmony to charge. I don't recall the harmony remote having the letters underneath so maybe I might have to learn them :D

Chocolate is my bread and butter. I like simplicity and chocolate is as simple as it gets. I couldn't abandon it simply because I want it to do one thing and it couldn't do it. YET. :)

Thanks for the shortcuts. They seems to actually work pretty well. Specially the jump to the first unwatched item. Also I just never paid attention but the letters are in the numeric pad in the harmony remote. I just thought the tricks to the girlfriend and she got it right away. Nice and neat.
