context menu on remote


Recommended Posts

i have a xbmcuntu setup for my home theatre pc.i just got my flirc and mostly it works well.im trying to use the file manager to copy files from a flash drive to a usb hard drive.there is no context menu button on the remote.the xbmc wiki says "Select the files that you wish to work with. Then, press the C or  Win button on keyboard or guide on the remote".

can someone tell me how to setup a guide button on flirc ?

Hi selfdetruct, welcome to the forums,


Switch to "fully keyboard" controller:



Then choose the button on your remote that you want to be the contextual menu button, map this to "c"


Does this answer your question?

The way long presses are treated depends largely on your remote, and a bit on the firmware you're using as well.  I can tell you that on my remote, I had no need for the channel buttons when controlling my XBMC box, so I assigned them to PageUp/PageDown so I could quickly navigate large lists in XBMC like your describing. My remote doesn't send long keypress info on some buttons, so this is what has worked best of me.
