Hi Steffen, it's starting to look really good (using revision: 18253)
One thing for the TV intreface when building a DS:
Clicking on an existing Data Element in the DS, makes the buttons for 
"Update" and "Cancel/close" appear to the far right. I think it would be 
  better to position those directly underneath the Data Element instead. 
I know this is a small thing, but I think they are to far away from the 
action. There's a nice HCI word for it which I can't remember, but the 
principle is, to put buttons/interactions close to where the action is.
