ok thanks for this but when i copied this en put it on the last line of mine keyboard file it open mine startmenu from windows 8 i tried this also before copiyng and it does the shame as after from windows 8 so this isnt working
First i copiyd this

<keymap>
<global>
<keyboard>
<esc mod="ctrl">ActivateWindow(Videos,videodb://tvshows/titles/)</esc>
</keyboard>
</global>
</keymap>

then this

<global>
<keyboard>
<esc mod="ctrl">ActivateWindow(Videos,videodb://tvshows/titles/)</esc>
</keyboard>
</global>
</keymap>

and finaly this

<keyboard>
<esc mod="ctrl">ActivateWindow(Videos,videodb://tvshows/titles/)</esc>
</keyboard>
</keymap>

but sadly nothing worked

When you guys are copying the lines above into the Keyboard.xml file, I thought that the entire file only allowed one <keymap> at lines 1 and at the very last line in the code as well?
In this example, are you guys just including the <keymap> and <glogal> to show where within the file the particular command needs to go (by the command itself I mean <esc mod="ctrl">ActivateWindow(Videos,videodb://tvshows/titles/)</esc> as an example.

There is only one Keyboard.xml file you should be using, right?

I'm not completely clear on what you are asking, but those headings are just categories.

<keymap> - Opens and closes the keymap
<global> - These commands impact Kodi in all states (global keys)
<FullscreenVideo> - These commands function when Kodi is in fullscreen playback

Each heading should only be used once in your keymap. You can test your commands by starting Kodi with the keymap in place and using your keyboard.

If you are still having problems, post your complete keyboard.xml and the name of the IR receiver you are using. A link to the product on the Internet would be helpful.

For the command posted, the complete keyboard.xml would be as follows:

<keymap>
<global>
<keyboard>
<esc mod="ctrl">ActivateWindow(Videos,videodb://tvshows/titles/)</esc>
</keyboard>
</global>
</keymap>

Pushing Cntrl + Esc on your keyboard should open the TV shows library. None of those section dividers should be repeated elsewhere in the keymap.
