Android/Fire TV client: Quicker moving through EPG

Post by paulwkelly » Fri Jan 04, 2019 10:08 am

One difference I have noticed between the Windows and Android TVMosaic clients is that the former allows you to jump to a specific date/time in the programme guide. I assume this feature was not implemented in the Android/Fire TV versions owing to the difficulty of interacting with date/time pickers using a simple remote control, for example.
Can I suggest a compromise solution, to speed up navigating a 14 day EPG more quickly than just scrolling? Would it be possible to add buttons adjacent to the date (top left of screen) to jump the EPG forwards or backwards 24 hours?
Whilst such buttons would work for a touchscreen interface, for the Fire TV interface I suggest these +/- day functions be mapped to the REW/FF buttons on its remote control.
Is this do-able?
