Report [XBMC] Further customisation of controls using keymaps [Advanced] in How To Posted February 4, 2014 Thank you very much burke and cposada, Especially for the straightforward answer: <!--Template XBMC keyboard file--><keymap><fullscreenvideo> <keyboard> <c>RunScript(script.xbmc.subtitles)</c> </keyboard></fullscreenvideo></keymap> It turns out I was WAY WAY overthinking it when it was actually this simple. I wasn't seeing the forest for the trees! "RunScript(script.xbmc.subtitles)" was mentioned in a few places in xbmc wiki's etc. but nothing direct as is put THIS, HERE, like THIS.... The next version of XBMC "RunScript(script.xbmc.subtitles)" will change to "ActivateWindow(SubtitleSearch)"
