Since about a month ago shift is ignored so shift-F3 is the same as F3. The reasons for this are involved and to do with legacy behaviour, but be assured that the change in behaviour fixes more than it breaks.

So the new XBMC remote from Pulse-eight has two buttons that cant be used because they send the same command as two other buttons?

I'm working on getting this fixed.
2nd Day Opinons of Hybrid Remote - Mudislander - 2011-09-30 12:35
OK 2nd day now. Still not working on Linux machine, but am confident it's not the remotes fault. However on my Win7 Laptop it's brilliant. I like the feel of the remote in my hand & if you watch the flash you get an indication of how good the connection is between the remote & machine. The IR side works well & I've been teaching the remote different commands & now have the work of 3 remotes on the Hybrid. TV is mapped to the on/off & input cycles with the user button, my surround amp is mapped to the 1 to 9 buttons for input, zero is off & volume to volume. My Sky+ box has all the other buttons.
I could have done with a record & seperate pause button - small downer. my other very small thing is I'm colour blind between red and green so the MC/TV button is a little difficult.for me 2 different LED's would have helped. i do not have a problem with no backlights as 1/. that chews the battery & 2/. I still battle to see what's on the button anyway. So what I'm trying to say is in my opinion the remote is well worth the price & initial wait from the PreOrder. Thanks to everyone who must have had a hard time getting this idea up and running.

anyone let us know what sort of angle this is? i have tried new batteries and with the dongle stuck to the wall i'm getting no reception at 2 foot!! Frankly one of the reasons i purchased this is because i was under the impression the RF would be omnidirectional, therefore my waving the remote in the general direction of the receiver, which is not anywhere near the TV, would be no more...
plus any news on the keyboard.xml for dharma users? or is there just a bit to change for getting the home button to work?

On my laptop I can move in a complete 360deg circle with the remote pointing away from the dongle. I'd say your problem is similar in my main machine where I suspect the usb port is not suppling enough voltage. I'm presently trying to find my old usb hub with power conector & then will be able to check further.

Range and Distance - Mudislander - 2011-09-30 17:02
Just out of interest, found my hub & on my laptop I can walk out the room up the stairs & into a bedroom while continually scrolling the main XBMC menu with the remote (Laptop stayed downstairs ). I've got to go off to work now but will try out my main machine tomorrow.

Just out of curiosity, will there be a way to set one of the keyboard buttons (Preferably red) to execute an alt+f4?

None of the other devs have shouted at me (yet), so this should be in Saturday's nightly build.
