    Hot Keys and Front ends

    Greetings everyone,

    Been gone for a year and some and decided to take another stab at my car pc project. Hopefully this question has been placed in the right place instead of the newbie forum.

    My question is this :

    One of my goals is to have most of the functions controlled by hot keys. for example if I wanted to open the music section I could press f4 or another key. What Front ends have this function ? I do know that frodo player allows this however I have not been able to find out if any of the others do through searching.

    thanks in advance,
    -S

    Vol Up = + key
    Vol Down = - key
    Navigate filelist = up and down arrows

    RoadRunner has as many as you want to define. It reads from a keytbl.ini file where you define any and all hotkeys for the front-end. I believe I currently have 38 set for my system.
