HP Digital Entertainment Center - USB Keyboard Support and Functionality

Information

USB keyboard support was added to the Digital Entertainment Center beginning with software update version 032602-1.3.38.

USB keyboard functionality

Some keys on the keyboard may not function as expected such as the BACKSPACE, DELETE and ENTER keys. Functionality of these keys will change with future software updates.
The keyboard can be used to edit the track/album/artist information and works in parallel with the Digital Entertainment Center on-screen keyboard. For this reason, there are a few things to remember when editing with the USB keyboard. For example, on the USB keyboard, the LEFT ARROW and RIGHT ARROW keys do not move the cursor in the editing field but rather move the selected character on the Entertainment Center on-screen keyboard. Also, the ENTER key on the USB keyboard does not complete the editing, the DONE key on the on-screen keyboard completes the edit.
note:
The USB keyboard is not yet supported for typing in text in the 'Music Finder' feature under the Internet Guide.
