Is there a table exist that list what each key do?
I look at the wiki it mentioned keyboard mapping and stuff but it doesn't say any where what each key do what on the PC keyboard.

I manage to work out a few like but if possible I like to see a full list so I use mapping software to map keyboard to gamepad controller.

I = information/IMDB lookup
Enter = Play/pause
Esc = cancel/go back
Arrow keys = move up/down/left/right
Right mouse=back to main screen with video playback on the left

<arrow keys> - navigate
<page up and down> - scroll up and down
<enter> - select
<esc> - previous menu
<backspace> - go up back (or up) a directory
<space> - pause
<period> - Skip Next
<comma> - Skip Previous
<tab> - Minimize Video
<backslash> - Full Screen Toggle
<printscreen> = Screen Shot
<minus> - Volume Down
<plus> - Volume Up
<0 - 9> - 0 through 9

p - Play
f - Fast Forward
c - Context menu
r - Rewind
x - Stop
m - Player controls
s - Shutdown menu
i - Info
q - Queue
z - Change aspect ratio

That will do me for now :-)

yep...pressing c doesn't work for me either. I've changed it in keymap but still no luck. All that works is right click on my mouse, but i'd like to control everything on xbmc with my remote. Any ideas why this won't work? Thanks.

Hi,

The button right is the correct key for ContextMenu:

In the keymap.xml it´s called <menu>

Are you changing the correct kymap.xml file? By this I mean, are you looking in the correct UserData folder? Depending on your setup there might be one in the XBMC folder or there may be one in the hidden C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\XBMC folder.

hi kricker, thanks for the tip, I didn't know there was another keymap.xml. I changed the settings there and it worked! now I don't have to reach for my mouse to update my library. Thanks!

In Atlantis beta 2, I can't find any file named keymap.xml??.
And I find down tab is used to switch to visualization when playing music.
