    A very annoying thing I have noticed re. menu behaviour:

    When you are in a 'List-view' screen (e.g. Tv guide, Moving pictures) and you are at the top of a list, wanting to go to the bottom of it, then pressing up in order to jump to the end does not work. However, when at the bottom of a list and pressing down, you are put back to the start, which makes sense.



    Strangely though, when browsing Music in 'Shared view' everything works as expected.

    Hopefully the above makes sense and could be added into future MP versions.

    Cheers.

    AW: Menu behaviour

    Here I have no problems with scrolling up to get to the end of ANY list. Maybe something wrong with your setup?

    well, fresh install of 1.1.1 with Maya skin has above issues. Hmm, maybe it's a skin issue.

    Running 1.2.0 Alpha + Maya here, and no problem with scrolling. And I never had previously either. Do you use a remote?

    pilehave,

    yes I do use a remote. Standard RC6 that came with a Philips IR receiver.

    There are only a couple of places where I cannot scroll from the top straight to the bottom by pressing 'UP'; TV guide for instance ;)

    The TV Guide is not a normal list, and this behaviour is fixed in 1.2.0 Alpha. Are there other places?

    Cheers for the quick reply. Just went through most my setup and TV Guide seem to the only place. Good to know that it is fixed in 1.2 though. Will write again in case I find anything else.
