    Remove option to use 'p' / 'play' button to launch latest tv series / movie / tv recording on home screeen, but retain the useage of 1,2,3 to launch the video.

    Justification: I like to use one button random music. This program will create a playlist of 100 random tracks and start playing music whenever I press the play button on the home screen.

    This program can also launch custom playlists or has custom functions when pressing the 1-9 keys on the home screen also. The 1-9 keys however can not be used to launch random playlist of tracks with star rating >0. I do not use this function, but some users might like to disable the numerical keys as well.

    So maybe 2 options
    1. Enable / disable use of 'p' / 'play' button to launch media on home screen
    2. Enable / disable use of 1,2,3 buttons to launch latest media on home screen

    I have posted an enhancement request in the issue tracker here:
    Issue 427 - streamedmp - Enable / Disable 'play' and 1,2,3 keys from launching latest media on home screen - Project Hosting on Google Code

    I assume this function is handled within streamedmp basic home .xml and not within the info service plugin.

    Yes, StreamedMP controls this functionality from our config plugin.

    Didn't realise this option was built into StreamedMP! Would this be why I get lock-ups sometimes when I press play from the home screen? A conflict between onebuttonmusic and the latest media function?

    Possibly bwg, you can try disable this behaviour from StreamedMP Settings...the whole reason why there is a setting is for one button music users.

    kiwijunglist, we can consider splitting that into two settings, 1 for disable Play (Play|P buttons) Action and 1 for disable 1,2,3 (Buttons) Play action

    cool thanks damien.

    just to add, this does not cause crashes for me. If I am on screen with recent media then 'play' launchest media, if i am on screen without this then one button music takes over. It seems that streamedmp inercepts the play button before one button music.
