On screen control Windows 7 media center

This is a little embarrassing, but I can't seem to find out what some of the on screen control are doing when watching live TV. That is, the small coloured button on the left hand side of the screen, to the left of the Text TV button. Also, the two button to the left of the coloured button, I am grateful for any advice. My TV works just fine by the way, jsut that I like to know what option there is to use.

Hello mbibt, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The teletext buttons from left to right:

On screen control Windows 7 media center-txt2.png Hold subpage. If the page has more subpages, pressing this button turns automatic subpage switching off. Image 1 shows where you can see if current page has subpages

On screen control Windows 7 media center-txt3.png Fast text buttons, working only if the broadcaster is using a fast text system. In image 2 red button would instantly switch to index, green one to program schedule, yellow to news and blue to sport
