Thanks Hitcher but where do you create /userdata/keymaps folder?
I created this here "skin.myskin/userdata/keymaps" and copied your keymap.xml in to it but it did not work ,
then I just added two lines from your keymap.xml to
xbmc-11.0/system/keymaps/keyboard.xml

and it worked but I want some keys to work in my skin only so where may I define those key actions?

Thanks again for Help.

you put it in your normal userdata folder. %appdata%/xbmc/userdata on windows, ~/.xbmc/userdata on linux, /Application Data/XBMC/userdata or thereabout on osx.

That means we can not define some keys which will work only with our skin....?

Thanks.

Is there a updated version of this aid that works with the PVR screens? I get nothing when one of those screens are open, like MyPVR.xml screen, or am i doing something wrong?
