Any means to keep overhang visible always?

Can anyone see a way to keep the overhang visible while playing? Talking specifically about the DP -> SDK conversion template scenegraph, video view.

Normally the overhang shows content title and time when you launch the content then fades slowly as the content begins to play.

I'd actually like to keep it visible for the duration of playback for #reasons.

Re: Any means to keep overhang visible always?

Instant TV Channel supports this feature using any of its "OverlayUrl" parameters. Basically it allows you to provide a full-screen PNG that has your overhang at the top (or anywhere else on the screen) while the rest of the PNG is transparent allow the video to be seen. For a really weird example of this, see "Joe Screwdrivers NASA Channel" which has (sort of) overhangs on the left and right sides of the screen. Same principle works with a simple overlay at the top of the screen. / - 717-441-4386 - Build a Roku SDK channel in 15 minutes! Easily and inexpensively generate subtitles!
