I'll try when I'll be back home, thanks.
Like I said I don't think that being 100% consistent with wmc in this very detail is needed/worth, could be just a single click to go to the epg or left to epg, right to channels or whatever.... better to have a duplication than a missing command.I think double clicks can not be captured, I need to check for such parameter.
In short the mouse usability should be the first concern for WMC skin. Mediaportal (and Kodi and...) are plenty of good looking skins, many of them have a very nice UI but often they are really poor in UX.
The WMC skin is a nice exception, it has already a very good subset of what the real WMC does, it's just the best, not because the colors and the layout, it's the best because it mimics something done well. WMC is usable very well via remote, via keyboard shortcut and via a pointing device (which isn't just a mouse, but also touch screens, trackballs, pens aand so on), so WMC skin should do the same.
Indeed, it's the same for the real WMC, which has the the direct button as well. IF is the keyword here...
One more thing. Speaking about mouse usability, the windows control buttons (minimize/close/....) should be visible when playing full screen video/Live TV, but they are not there, they are way too small anyway where they appears.
