    Users with the MCE remote already can use the following action by default.

    For keyboard users the action is not yet assigned to any keyboard button by default, but you can do it for yourself:

    1. open MPconfig
    2. go to General > Keys and Sounds
    3. open Global Actions
    4. assign the action "ACTION_SWITCH_HOME" to any button (for example "H")

    5. Now you can jump straight to home screen, or switch between Classic and Basic home screen.

    Perhaps this action could be assigned to a keyboard button by default.

    Hi,

    thanks for this tipp! Something I did search for quite some time....


    Having a Hauppauge 45 button remote, you can do following:

    1. open MPconfig
    2. go to Remote -> Hauppauge -> Mapping
    3. Select the "Home" button settings
    4. Add a new condition with these settings:
      Layer: all
      Condition: Window -> Home
      Action: Action -> Switch Home
    5. Move the condition Up over "No condition"
    6. Now you can switch between Classic and Basic Home, while still being able to jump directly to home

    HTH,
    Flip.

    Would be nice to include this mapping to SVN :)
