I don't know for the others but for me I could find useful to have the U key (parent directory) not to stop a the root of each module but to go the home menu. It's a bit awkward to use U and then change to Esc.

It could be nice to rotate the picture left and right with the up and down key (to remember the rotate position is really a nice feature), it will also diminish the number of used keys.

When we are in full screen with a picture, to get back to the folder view just press the enter key could also be nice.

    you can edit the keymap.xml to get most of your wishes done.
    keys r user configurable.

    I do not understand what you mean by the first request about the U and esc key?

    Keymap

    I don?t know if I?m doing something wrong with the keymap, but when I change a key it doesn?t work.

    Example :

    <description>Rotate Picture</description>
    <id>50</id>
    <key>R</key>

    to
    <description>Rotate Picture</description>
    <id>3</id>
    <key>up</key>


    And also, in principle I understand how to exchange keys in the keymap file but don?t really know how to implement what I want.


    U and Esc Key

    When I use U key in a module, the top parent folder I can get is the module root, but I?ll have to press Esc to go to media portal home. Just nice to press another time U and not Esc to go to media portal home.

    By module root, I mean the folder you selected in the setup. By Media Portal home I mean the first screen with my TV etc? hope it's understandable :)


    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm affraid that that will cause some annoying moments when you pressed U 1 time too much.

    But, why press U a couple of times when you want to go to home?
    You can press ESC @ all moments to go to home ?

    The way it is now is the simplest there is I think?

    I just like the idea of one button for going all the way to the top :) But I understand your point.
