[PVR] Change keyboard.xml to PVR related MCE key combinations #1500

merged 1 commit into from

3 participants


The default keyboard.xml only contained notifications for several MCE key combinations. Since the integration of PVR, some of these key combinations can be mapped to relevant PVR functions.

These mappings are similar to the mappings in remote.xml, apart from the , which opens the EPG window in MCE, instead of the OSD window.

since you're changing existing keymappings: could someone else have a look at this and sign off or comment


Changes look fine - all but one is just changing notifications, i.e. noops, to something useful. The other is changing the GUIDE key to actually bring up the guide, rather than the OSD (which already has a key).
