Sound info on screen?
#1
If I press the ok button on my remote when viewing a show or film a menu appears at the bottom of the screen with all sorts of useful info.Time,year,title,finish time etc.Is there any way this could include sound format ? e.g.2 channel,5.1 etc.

Sorry if it has been asked elsewhere but I could not find the answer.

you'll have to press the info button on your remote to view those things.

I do get the bottom icons appear but on the left is pause,stop,foward,backward etc icons.
On the right is icons for a speaker,camera,plus and equals sign and an info symbol.
To get any more about sound,picture etc I have topress the relevant icon.
In your pic.all the info is displayed after one press of the button.Sorry cannot post a pic.

The link you presented showed only the standard OSD in Transparency! I've stacked the two available OSD displays tthe image on the bottom is available form the I key or a couple of right mouse clicks toggling between. Suggest you remap a remote key for the keyboard 'i'

For the last couple of years I have been using my tv remote to control both Kodi and tv.
I am not sure I can achieve what you suggest just using that.

You've been using a TV remote for years, does that mean you've had access to this information screen previously? Remapping a remote for a keyboard key is not rocket science, but requires a bit of diligence and some editing software skills. Keymap (wiki) gives a link to the editor and locations of the files that need adjustments. I've been using a FLIRC (wiki) for years and it allows any remote (including your TV remote) to be used with a dedicated Kodi map set-up. An alternative is one of the wireless media controllers such as the Logitech M830 or wireless keyboard mouse combinations.
