change and shows the title
of the current and upcoming
program as well as whether
or not the current channel
can be recorded.
Interesting were the but-
tons for social networks like
Facebook and Twitter; they
can be used by users to tell
their friends about the pro-
gram they are currently
watching. If available, the
user can also select between
different audio tracks and he
can also set up the video dis-
play to his personal tastes.
Thanks to the Timeshift
function the program that is
currently being watched can
be paused at any time and
then restarted when needed.
It turns out though that the
amount of space that can be
used by the Timeshift func-
tion in the initial settings is
only about 100 MB and this
corresponds to about four
minutes of recording time in
SD mode. Depending on the
available memory in the end
device, this space can natu-
rally be increased.
We really liked the EPG
function in our tests; it can
be found behind the menu
heading Guide and proved it-
self to be very practical. The
App displays the program-
ming information for up to
12 different channels for the
next seven days. And again,
just a single push of a button
provides more detailed in-
formation on a specific pro-
gram. And just like before,
the same social network
the channel list.
The App‘s Main Menu in-
cludes the headings Live TV,
Recordings, Guide and Set-
tings. Under Live TV you‘ll
find the complete chan-
nel list and, if it was loaded
from the Internet, it would
include the broadcaster
logos and also, if available,
the EPG information for the
current program. A gentle
touch on the touchscreen is
all that‘s needed for the App
to start streaming the se-
lected channel. The Infobar
at the bottom of the screen
appears after each channel
