Keyboard controls Plex for Kodi

Hi all,

I was wondering if there's a Plex specific keyboard shortcut to take me to the home page of the Plex app for instance. Currently when I press the home button it takes me to the Kodi homepage.

    esc should do it.

    That seems to take me back to the previous page. Would it be possible to program a button to have the same function as pressing the top left home button within the addon?

    What button would you make this? possible yes, and I can see its usefulness, and can add it to the list of keyboard controls we need to add.

    I would reprogram backspace as back and escape as home imo.

    I agree, that would be the most logical solution

    It would mess with many remotes which don't operate like that, so I'm not sure that's an option.

    Perhaps just a random key not in use by Plex then? Since I generally use a simple remote control I'm not sure which ones fall under that category..

    @keithah

    Why not just mimic the Plex Media Player keyboard shortcuts?
