The display style is governed by the skin (which can choose how to display the NextAired pages) and by various NextAired settings. Your image shows poster style with the "Start with today" option and "show yesterday" enabled. A recent release also apparently changed how right aligned text groups get displayed, so if you're using the default skin xml that comes with the NextAired script you'll need the latest version for this to be fixed (see the link in the first post or wait a bit for 6,0.14 to show up).

What gets displayed when is handled by the skin author, so you'd need to tweak the skin code to make such a change. Some skins have a sort of Coming Soon (non-interactive) page that I've seen that you can get to via the main menu pages (e.g. Ace).

The show names are in the images, though you should also see it displayed by the skin for the current selection as you move around. If you're not getting a good enough show name in the images, you can either change to a different image style (e.g. Logo or Banner), or change the poster/banner associated with the show (via normal Kodi actions) to one that has the show name displayed better.

I see. The problem is if I am viewing something. No big deal.

TV Shows - Next Aired started having text and scrolling issues yesterday. The text appears to be too big/wide for the blue description box and actually overlaps downward and out. The text scrolls left apparently because of the size of the text. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I really enjoy using the TV Shows - Next Aired addon.

Did the skin you use update? It is mainly up to the skin to make those pages look good, because Kodi doesn't provide adequate tools to a script writer to be able to provide default pages that looks good for any skin. The biggest issue is that scripts can't supply any font definitions, so the default pages I provide use Confluence font names that are known to exist in that skin. If the skin of your choosing doesn't have those font names (or has them sized differently), then you'll end up with fonts that look bad.

Your options are: use a skin with the full Next-Aired skinning done for you, use Confluence and let me know if the "today-start" page (that you cited) looks weird (they don't skin that one, but they do skin the Monday-start page), or tweak the default-page xml the script provides to use font names that will work with the skin of your choosing (which might require you to twiddle the skin's Font.xml to create some missing font sizes).

Yes, it appears to be an issue with the newly updated Black Glass Nova skin as it works as it should in Confluence. Thanks for the timely reply.

Hello all
ok so I've setup next aired with genesis...my question is can I set up next aired to link up with one channel and genesis, I want to do this because one channel seems to get links up as soon as they are aired rather genesis, tho quality is excellent, takes a day to link up. Ive done what I did with genesis with one channel and linked to same folder for library but when I add to library from one channel next aired still only pulls up genesis links when I select on the guide?
any help as to get it linked to one channel would be awesome!
btw next aired is AWesome!! great job devs
