List of keyboard shortcuts?


I don’t know whether this is posted anywhere (or even really Android specific, but it’s what I use…) but I couldn’t seem to find it. I have a Harmony 650 and a FLIRC and am wondering what direct keyboard mappings are available in Channels? Sounds like you can do channel surfing with PGUP/PGDN and direct comskip via a double tap right arrow sequence. Are all of the rest of the mappings the same as the usual Kodi/Plex keys?


We haven’t done a good job of documenting these yet, but here are some other useful ones:

[: seek to last commercial marker
]: seek to next commercial marker
BACKSPACE: jump to last channel
SPACE: pause/resume

I’m hoping to publish a more in-depth document about FLIRC integration soon.


Hello - saw this and was wondering if the complete list of shortcuts is posted somewhere?

I’m using the NVidia Shield Android TV and Harmony Elite remote. I also added a Windows keyboard option to my Harmony Remote devices, and paired it to my Shield for full list of keys.

I noticed the Windows Guide button brings up the Live Channels app guide - not sure if there is a way to override that. The main keys I’m looking for are:

Skip Back
Skip Forward
Fast Forward



That would be sweet. I’m a FLIRC user myself, and it really opens up a lot of options for the app.


A request for shortcuts for the Guide, Favorites, Last Channel would be awesome.

Mappings of F1 thru F10 for Harmony remotes,or a keyboard, would be welcome.

Thanks for considering! :grinning:


Last Channel is a double-press of Play. Favorites can be seen by pressing Menu or Down (which displays the mini-guide and audio options). The "Mini-Guide" can be set to display Favorites, HD Channels, or All Channels.


A shortcut to up next/recordings list would be great too.
