I just tried your actual SVN version.

I realised that is is not possible to use the remote to fill in the PIN-code for protected folders.
After some investigation, I found out that the num keys of the remote (MCE) and also the keyboard use an SMS style input methode.
Something like this: a - b - c - à - á - ä - 1

Could you please change it back to normal input, because it is only possible to use number as PIN-code.



PS. The new look is really great and seems to be really fast.

    there is a button in the down left corner of the keyboard which reads STANDARD or SMS. Can you click it and confirm it solves pin input problem?

    SMS keyboard active - down left key name is STANDARD (for switch to standard)
    STANDARD keyboard active - down left key name is SMS (for switch to SMS)

    Hello SilentException,

    shame on me. Didn't noticed that.
    Works as expected.

    Thanks a lot.
