GeeXboX Daily Usage – Inputs and Key Mapping

September 17th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

GeeXboX and its XBMC frontend can be controlled by multiples input devices, from regular mouse and keyboards to more advanced remote controls (including iOS / Android applications). Actually, any remote control that is compatible with HID protocol is automatically usable with GeeXboX.

While the easiest way probably is to control XBMC frontend through a typical mouse device, one can easily use any kind of keyboard.

If such is your plan, below is a key mapping description table:
