To cater for the few buttons, there is a new "OSD Navigation" action
that you can assign to the enter button. There is a "long press"
capability so that you can assign menu action to a long press of enter.
There is a new way of selecting recording groups from the playback list.
All important remote functions can be controlled by making appropriate
settings in the keyboard assignments.
You can plug in a USB remote that emulates a keyboard, or a keyboard.
Also you can use the TV remote if the TV supports CEC. I believe most
TVs support CEC. You may need to use the keyboard assignment settings to
assign keys as needed.
