<chuckle>  Now you've opened that can of worms!  First, we loved the two 
Christmas themes and switched between the two, so a big Thank You!

To us the season and episode number on the main menu aren't important 
but would like to see the total run/recording time. Also would be nice 
to be able to adjust field/font sizes individually, or at least the main 
menu and closed captioning independent.  We like to see the recorded 
"Fri 1/15" and to get that all to display have to decrease the size of 
the Closed Captioning.

So here's a proposal for us 'moaners' (I know that was said in jest) as 
can't please everyone would it be possible to have an options menu?   
Season/episode -- yes/no.  Runtime - yes/no. Maybe certain constant 
items like recorded date have a large/small [font size] option.  I know: 
a lot more work but may solve the noise issue.  (Just thought of 
positioning issues: if select season/episode and not runtime may have a 
column space -- ah, gives us something to moan about! <gg>)
