how to expand description of video episodes

using videoplayer example to build my channel.

I see in the showFeed.brs there is a line called Description

item.Description = validstr(curShow.description.GetText())

so I added <description>text goes here</description> to my xml file, but only the synopsis shows.
How can I get a full description to show on the page below the play button?

Re: how to expand description of video episodes

There is a set limit for all the generic screen types - so to get a full description you could add a user-selectable button for 'Show complete description" and use a roTextScreen to display all the text you like.
