I have decided to add search functionality to one of my Boxee HTML5 apps. However I have run into a problem:
How do I get keydown events from the keyboard (i.e. non-navigation buttons)?
I use the following for key handling
The navigation keys work fine, but I never get an event from the regular keyboard keys through Boxee (verified using jsconsole.com).
var code = (e.keyCode ? e.keyCode : e.which);
console.log('code: ' + code);
Is it not possible to get events of the keys on the back of the remote? I would feel kind of stupid implementing an onscreen keyboard, when the remote has a full keyboard :-)
