Keys & Controls …

How to use OSD menu …

The GeeXboX’s OSD Menu can easily be controlled using either a single keyboard or a remote controller. Use the up and down arrows keys to switch between the main menu options. The right arrow is used to go to a specific submenu (i.e “Ok”) and the left one is for coming back (i.e “Cancel”).

GeeXboX default ISO has been compiled with support for the ATI Remote Wonder. It means that if you’re using another kind of remote, you may have to build your own GeeXboX, using the ISO generator or tell otherwise at boot prompt. If you would like to use another kind of remote that is not currently supported by the GeeXboX, you’ll have to build the sources and modify ./packages/lirc/lircd.conf. See the LIRC WebSite for further details about how to modify this file.

Using the keyboard …

GeeXboX can be controlled only using the keyboard. A lot of keys are bindded to many controls and the descriptions below will help you deal with it. Whatever your keyboard is (Qwerty, Azerty, Dvorak …) it’ll be seen by the GeeXboX as a qwerty keyboard and thus, the mapping may change a little bit.

Below are the bindings for Qwerty keyboard:

and same applies for an Azerty keyboard:

and here comes the numpad bindings:

Using a supported remote …

GeeXboX can be controlled using a LIRC-compliant remote and receiver. The only officially supported remote is the Remote Wonder, provided by ATI. Many other brands sell exactly the same controller and if the one you bought looks like the one above, it means that it’s supported.

Even if the remote is user-friendly, here’s the complete key bindings between the Remote Wonder and GeeXboX :
