#5494 closed defect (invalid)

'Delete' and 'Pause' keys should delete and play/pause

Reported by: hencke3@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: trivial Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: 0.21
Severity: low Keywords: delete pause shortcuts
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Some people use MythTV only with a keyboard. Currently in many menus only the keys 'd', 'p' and 'm' function to delete, play/pause and bring up a menu, respectively. Some people might find the 'Delete' and 'Pause' keys more intuitive for the first 2 tasks.


  • play/pause while watching recordings should work from the 'p' and 'Pause' keys
  • deleting recordings (Watch Recordings) and channels (Channel Editor) should work from the 'd' and 'Delete' keys

If I knew how to, I would certainly try and fix this myself... (I hope it's a matter of changing just a few lines of code?)

You can change the bindings to whatever you want using the keybinding editor. If you have MythControls? installed go to "Edit Keys" on the settings menu or you can MythWeb.

Yes, and by the time people install MythControls? and change the settings, they already now to press 'd' and 'p' instead of 'Del' and 'Pause'? My point was, would it be good to change the defaults?

Anyway, it was just a suggestion (to help new users, not myself).

Thanks for the great program, personally I'm very pleased with my MythTV setup!
