Question  Long lists, file mode, quick navigation, can I use alpha keys somehow?
Post: #1
I always browse my music in files mode. I have say 250 items in a folder.
Scrolling is quick for me (list view, MediaStream), but it could be quicker.

Using library search is fine... but that first means switching from files mode to library mode.

I've always been a fan of how windows explorer works -- type a letter and explorer takes you there. (eg, type Sma... and you get to, Smashing Pumpkins).

Is it possible to do this in xbmc? Often times I look down at my dinovo mini and think, all these keys... and I hardly use most of em!

greatful for any advice.

I know you can map to jump to the start of a letter.
