0Kodi keymap for miniguide on arrow keys in livetv

What a horrible title that is, but I didn’t know how else to describe this. Since switching from Media Center to Kodi I’ve mostly been very pleased, but a few small niggles have remained where for some reason Kodi just doesn’t default to “nice” behaviour in the same way that Media Center did. I long ago managed to get the “Live TV” link from the main menu to point to the guide view instead of a channel list, but once a channel is being displayed I couldn’t find a neat way to describe a mini-guide like Media Center would do.


I have finally found a solution to this, via a custom keymap file. The kodi mini guide isn’t as nice as in Media Center, but it’s much better than nothing.

<keymap>
  <FullscreenLiveTV>
    <remote>
      <up>ActivateWindow(pvrosdchannels)</up>
      <down>ActivateWindow(pvrosdchannels)</down>
    </remote>
    <keyboard>
      <up>ActivateWindow(pvrosdchannels)</up>
      <down>ActivateWindow(pvrosdchannels)</down>
    </keyboard>
  </FullscreenLiveTV>
</keymap>
