I believe if you set XBMC Shutdown function to Shutdown, then the Shutdown icon will be automatically highlighted when S is pressed. Like any keyboard stroke, no pause is necessary, the command will be sent directly following S which will shutdown.
But yes, it will not work in windows.
No, that's not correct.
Whether or not the option is set in XBMC to 'shutdown the PC' when the shutdown option is selected, the default choice when the 's' key is pressed is EXIT
which will not shut anything down, it will just exit to windows. This is why you also have to do an arrow down and then an enter.
Before I added the pause about 10% or so of the time the keys would be transmitted from the Harmony too quickly (default I think is a very tight 30ms) and XBMC would miss one or more of them leaving it stranded without shutting down.
The option to change the IR speed was not one I wanted to look into since I was very happy otherwise with inter-key delay, etc, with my setup.
Anyways, all I can say is that KeyExtender does the job PERFECTLY and has the added bonus of shutting down even if something crashes and you are in the Windows desktop instead of XBMC.
The only problem with KeyExtender is the ludicrous $20 price.
