When looking for a program in the program finder some letters can have 500+ shows in them. If the show you want is in the middle of this list you might need to page down 25 times. This is a simple patch to use the "5" key (middle of the keypad) to move to the middle of the list. This cuts the PageUp/PageDowns? considerably and saves quite a bit of time.

Note this was inspired by the functionality in MythMusic where the number keys are used to navigate the lists... 1=10% 2-20% ... 9-90% etc. but some of the keys are already used in the Program Finder so I just used "5".

Maybe someone else will find it useful. Tested on 20-fixes but seems to apply to trunk as well.

I've added the new key to keys.txt so it's not forgotten. Hope it's correct, I haven't the new functionality yet. See attached patch
