    You could be right about the multiple Home screens. I will experiment with this and see if I can get it to work. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

    What do you mean by list shortcuts? Do you mean list filtering? Say I'm looking at a list of items and I type letters to filter items matching my input.

    Lucky nothing should be taken away by those changes. HID keyboard is an opt-in functionality. Users can still use our legacy keyboard handler.
    However we obviously want to align and match the functionality of our legacy keyboard handler whenever possible and wherever it makes sense.
    Nevertheless this is obviously a work in progress and I reckon it will take us a few releases to complete that feature parity.

    We should be able to get that working with HID. Getting digits to work in EPG should be straight forward too, simple configuration changes should do.

    I don't know what the correct terminology is for this, but it might best be described as a "scrolling shortcut". On a long list (multiple pages), you can type one or more upper case letters in order to get the list to scroll immediately to the first item that begins with those letters.

    I would think of "list filtering" as a facility that shows only the items that begin with (or perhaps contain) the letters typed.

    You were correct about this. I changed the window condition from "Home" to "Second Home", and now the START button works as expected (displays the "Shutdown" pop-up menu). (y) However...

    There is something odd about this. The default action ("No condition") for the START button within MP is to display the "Home" panel, but the condition for the "Shutdown" pop-up has to specify "Second Home" in order to work. If the "Shutdown" condition specifies "Home", it does not work. :confused:

    I tried changing the default action for START to specify "Second Home" in place of "Home", and the START button works correctly. So the "Home" panel and the "Second Home" panel are the same panel in DefaultWideHD. But the "Shutdown" condition works only for "Second Home". :confused:

    I wonder if this is a problem with the way that DefaultWideHD assigns its panel ids? @catavolt ?

    Well, there is presumably at least one person who uses scrolling shortcuts... :D
