Description

It would be nice to have a restart button in Showtime.
A lot of times when I have issues with Showtime, when I exit and then start Showtime again they are gone.
But exiting and starting it again takes a lot of time.

Pressing PS and then selecting "Quit showtime" is just two button presses.
Not too much IMHO. If you think showtime is soo bad that you need to exit it with one keypress perhaps you should not use it at all :-(

I'd be more happy if you reported real bugs instead.

You've completely misunderstood what I am trying to say.
I know how to exit Showtime and that it's easy. What I am talking about was a button which would make Showtime reload in clean fresh state. Like you've just lunched it from the XMB. I'm not talking about exiting Showtime but restarting it.
Everybody knows that Windows and other software sometimes mess up. And what everybody usually do is to restart the computer or the software. PS3 Media Server has 'Restart Server' button (which is reloading the software in fresh state not exiting it).
Moreover I didn't report a bug, but asked for a feature to be implemented.
As for "you should not use it at all :-(", well I use it every day to play all my media and I love it.
I appreciate your work and I don't think it's "soo bad"

Ok I understand now. Sorry for being a bit harsh.
I've been thinking about this but rather not have it as a separate but always write the navigation stack to disk.
And maybe the playqueue too.

Shift+F5 does the job.
