    Well, the "remote fix" is very easy to implement yourself + you can still get the other homescreen to show by pressiong "H" on a keyboard if you have one for your HTPC in addition to the remote.

    "Second Home"[/B] Window rather than the default (I can't remember what it is). All you have to do is configure the keymappings exactly as shown in the attached screenshot.
    :oops:
    I have to assume that the solution cannot help me.
    When I wrote "Exclude switch to Home screen with ugly vertical menu" I did not mean the START button (or any else) of MCE remote which switches to the ugly screen.
    First, I am using Soundgraph IMON remote (which is set up easily by associating with hotkeys).
    Second, I mean the following situation: suppose I am at pretty nice home screen with horizontal menu.
    If I enter to, for example, "Video" submenu then I will be in, for example, MovingPictures screen.
    To return I use "ESC" button on keyborad (and the same button is present on IMON remote).
    After pressing ESC I come back to the pretty home screen.
    But I if press ESC again - I come to the ugly home screen with vertical menu!!!!
    I hate this screen, and I am looking for decision how to NOT TO COME BACK TO THE UGLY SCREEN

    Did you (in Configuration/General) set "Start with Basic Home"?

    To exclude the ugly HOME, I replaced the "MyHome.xml" file with this one:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>
    <window>
    <id>0</id>
    <defaultcontrol>888888</defaultcontrol>
    <allowoverlay>yes</allowoverlay>

    Pressing ESC does exactly the same thing as pressing the MCE or Start button on the Windows remote. We're all talking about the same issue here.

    That is nice, but it cannot help me 'cause I am using another remote control.
    The Soundrgraph remote control has an ESC button (and ENTER also).
    If I press this button in BasicHome, I switch to the ugly Home screen.

    So, after correcting the "MyHome.xml" (as I described above) after pressing ESC button in BasicHome, now I see a startup splashscreen with text "Press ENTER to return". After pressing ENTER button on my remote I come back to the BasicHome screen.
    I am quite satisfied with this solution.
