There are ZOOMIN and ZOOMOUT keybindings to do that IIRC they are '<'
and '>' by default or press MENU and change the zoom level from the
popup menu. The level will be saved when you exit the screen and is
reused when you re-enter it.

The keybinding to show the program details is the 'Details' binding in
the 'TV Frontend' context. I change it to 'W' so it's just on less
button to find on my remote since 'W' is already used elsewhere. Most
screens now have popup menus for easy access to many things like this
although that does require a few more key presses but does mean you
don't have to remember obscure key binding like 'U' to show program details.
