I've been looking at the new context menu code and found that the ACTION_SHOW_INFO has now become redundant since the info action is almost always an option under the context menu. I think it might be a good idea to remove the ACTION_SHOW_INFO action and ensure that anything it was doing becomes an option in the context menu. This would simplify gui navigation and usage. Of course this would only be in the GUI and during video playback the ACTION_CONTEXT_MENU could bring up the OSD. If we did this it would also simplfiy navigation with the MCE remote (and others) since now the "i" button is freed up to be used by the context menu. I find it a real pain to regrip the MCE remote to hit the yellow button.

    I don't think the INFO action should be removed. I really like the fact that I can use F3 to directly go to the info screen. I think it would make more sense to just map the CONTEXT action to the I button on your remote instead of the yellow button.
