    Lets add usefull tips to this topic. Things which are usefull but maybe not known to most people.

    Please only reply with new tips & tricks!!

    Ok lets start:

    Did you know that:
    - You can search in lists by using SHIFT+[A-Z] or using the sms style with 0-9
    - You can have logo's for tv stations? Place the logo in thumbs\tv\logos and give each logo the same name as the tvchannel. So a logo for 'MTV' should be called thumbs\tv\logos\MTV.png
    - You can also have logo for radio stations? place the logo in thumbs\radio and give each logo the same name as the radio station. So a logo for 'Sky FM' should be called thumbs\tv\logos\Sky FM.png
    - most screens have context menu's you can see when pressing F9
    - F3 on a file (movie,video,picture,music) shows a detailed info screen?
    - ALT+Enter switches between fullscreen/windowed mode?
    - you can delete a file by pressing 0 on a selected file
    - in menu's like switch view you can quick-select an item with 0-9
    - x switches between fullscreen & GUI when viewing tv/video
    - s switches between several zoom modes when viewing tv/video
    - space pauses/resumes playing
    - enter will switch to the previous channel while watching tv in fullscreen mode
    - F5 rewinds, F6 fastwords a music/movie?
    - F7/F8 will play the previous/next item from the playlist

    Did you know - when an alarm goes off, the pause button acts as a snooze button.

    The amount of time to snooze is configurable through the My Alarm setup screen in the MP configuration.

    My 2 year daughter showed me I can fullscreen DVD playback by using the scroll wheel on my mouse!
    My kids are always finding undocumented features like that! hahaha :D

    (Well OK, maybe it is documented somewhere but I haven't seen it.)
