All keyboard shortcuts gone (1 Viewer)

I have the problem that all keys on the keyboard seem to be disabled and I can only use MediaPortal with my mouse. I already tried uninstalling a reinstalling it and also deleted all user files but that didn't fix the problem.
I also noticed now that in the configuration under "General" -> "Keys and Sounds" everything is empty and there is no entry at all. How can I get the default settings back for that, as I said I tried reinstalling MP and deleting the user files, what else can or do I have to do to get a fresh MediaPortal installation with total default settings including the settings for key settings for global actions?

Thanks and greetings!

I know this is a late however i happened upon the same issue today.
All keys on the keyboard did not respond to any commands in mediaportal.
Keyboard worked fine in windows tho.
I also noticed now in the configuration under "General" -> "Keys and Sounds" everything is empty

To fix this for windows you need to copy a fille called keymap.xml to
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal

I have attached the file to this thread in case you do not have a backup.
