    This is a long-time wish from me, too. I think it would greatly improve the user experience. Especially for users who download and install and never use forum or wiki.

    And I really want to thank pbb for the tremendous work he put in the wiki the last weeks. Also the other contibutors but he is really standing out at the moment.

    As for the integrated help system there might be the need to create special wiki pages for this purpose?

    some thoughts:

    # more condensed with less text

    # possibility for content listing like the context menu
    ## 1. Available keys/actions
    ## 2. Screen elements
    ## 3. FAQ
    ## 4. Tips & Tricks
    ## 5. Other

    # more screen-orientated help pages
    ## with basic remote/keyboard actions
    ## with explanation of the buttons and other screen elements

    # maybe a structure for these pages that allows for localisation

    with a fallback to english if no localized page is available

    Some help/starting-point for the programming could be

    Nothing is happening!

    Is this a bad idea? Would anyone like to comment?
    Or are there just no bored developers with nothing too do? ;)
