I want the live TV to be switched to groups with one touch when it is on fullscreen

Greetings,

I have been using it with Kodi for 7-8 years, but I couldn’t do it, or have it done.

What I want is this: I want the live TV to be switched to groups with one touch when it is on fullscreen.
I would like to see the menu on Live TV as pictured.

Like this one.

I’m gonna be so happy if I can’t tell you.

Best regards…

This is a Kodi-only change. You’d have to make a feature request on Kodi’s website.

Maybe you can map a button as a workaround ?

Pressing OK button for longpress should bring this menu up

Greetings,

Dear @vpeter we have been using it for years, I want to go directly to the groups menu with one button.

Best regards…

I don’t see any group window. So there is no possibility to show them.
You can change groups by Left button when you see channels.

There is a groups window (I believe it’s actually a dialog). I use a remote key to bring up the groups list when in my guide page. Unfortunately, I’m on vacation and can’t remember offhand what the proper window name is, but if I can VPN back home to search through my keymap, I’ll post it here. You’ll need to map a key yourself to open the window, but it’s pretty trivial.

The answer is in the thread you posted on the Kodi forums:

The answer right above yours should work to bring up the groups menu on any page.

Greetings,

Now I’m hopeful, thanks a lot.

I mean, can’t I just do what’s in this message?

I use a script to do this kind of thing - it’s overkill for what you want (it opens channels or guide window and a specified group, defaults to groups selection if no valid group is named).

I use a remote control shortcut. It opens the channels and when I press Left or Right it goes to the next or previous group.

This is standard behaviour without any changes in skin or with any extra script.

What zang74 posted is exactly what ozkaradag asked.
