Recordings Thumbnails simple text alternative?

Is there, or could there be, an option to turn off the display of thumbnails for recordings? While the thumbnails look very impressive and professional, we had one recording from IPTV which, for whatever reason, didn't end up with a thumbnail and instead just displayed the text of the title in the box. To be honest it was much easier to read that and see what it was than the thumbnails. My wife has sight problems and would much prefer it to display that way all the time.

In searching about this all I've found are posts where the thumbnails have disappeared at some point due to a glitch, so presumably it wouldn't be that difficult to implement this as a deliberate option?
