During video playback and the playcontrol menu off, can you change the behavior of this buttons on controller :

✕ Activate (Enter) become Play/Pause
✜ Navigate left right become Fast Forward and Rewind
✜ Navigate up become Bring up options / playcontrol menu

Excellent idea!!

  • Target version set to 4.0

I'd like to use up/down for other stuff in the future (maybe volume inc/dec)

Also, If showtime ever gets to display picture-in-picture video i want to use the activate button
in those cases.

But left+right are now seek buttons (and on the ps3 six axis remote controller they are also pressure sensitive so the harder you press, the harder it seeks)

Mostly useful from 3.99.461

Excellent, thanks Andreas for your great work.

I really like the idea for up / down Navigation.

What about the Enter button on the PS3 Blu Ray Remote, it feels so natural to use it for Play/Pause. :)
