New Set Top Box Interface - Time Warner TV

#1
This question is about "New Set Top Box Interface", with Time Warner Cable TV and apps. Most of the changes made to the interface are fine, but one I find annoying is the change to the use of the Info button. Before the new interface, the first press of the Info button brought up some basic info about the show being watched and the second press brought up additonal information, but with whatever you're watching still in full screen mode. Now, the second press of the Info button takes you to a screen where what you're watching is relegated to a small screen in the corner of the window and the rest of the screen with information about the show.

Interface designers should try to leave as much of the current interface in place and add to it. A better design would have been to add a third press to bring up this new screen, but left the prior approach in place.
