Hows that going to work without coloured buttons unless now tv plans on releasing a new remote?
The FAQs section mentions about Smart Boxes bundled with a remote that has the star button coloured as red - indicating that they're planning to launch red button services.
I see, still it would probably need green, yellow and blue for navigation purposes. Dont forget green can be used to hide the red button prompt on the BBC channels. It would also need number buttons as well? Or is this soley aimed for the streaming channels, MHEG-IC?
Could be that the RGYB buttons are implemented via an on-screen keypad? That's how Windows Media Center handled it (in addition to supporting optional RC6 remotes with coloured buttons)
Wonder if they'll also implement HbbTV - as I think both Freeview and Freesat are likely to migrate from MHEG to that standard. BBC are already planning to I think.
I've used HbbTV on a couple of different platforms - and the implementations were great. However it does have potential security issues...
