Low vision TIVO user issues..... If this should be in the hack subforum please let me know and I will repost.
As you can imagine from the subject line, I am a low vision TIVO user since the SVR 2000 came out. We love our TIVO even though some features of TIVO are a bit difficult to use comfortably. Some of these problems are listed below. Some possible ideas or "wish list" solutions follow. If anyone has suggestions or ideas that would be great.
Fonts in the on screen guide are too small
Background in the on screen guide is not solid black so the picture bleeds through effecting differentiation and contrast.
Extensive searching becomes tedious as I have to use a monocular to read the menus etc .
Banner disappears too soon for me to read what is on .
Some Ideas / dreams I have
More font control especially on the on screen display.
Background control program guide.
Better Banner control
The ability to have TIVO speak menu content
Real control of my TIVO and all of its features from my computer.
Is anything available in the secret menus of the backdoors?
I am probably not the only one out there with this problem and I realize that at best we are a small notch group of users, but .. some solutions would make TIVO use more enjoyable.
