What does this fix exactly?
the google np remote doesn't have enough buttons so you won't be able to add anything to favorites etc. in kodi without mapping the play/pause button to make it have a context menu/right click action. by default when pressed, it'll work the same way as the center enter button inbetween the directional keys so that means you basically have two buttons that do the same thing when used in kodi

Ahh perfect! This is what I need. I can't get menu button to work to come up in Linux Deploy in order to get NHL to work under Pho*nix for live streaming. It's a 75 step process and I am on like step 12. This may do the trick. I even bought an Amazon fire stick remote to use the menu button. I tried the Keymap Editor too to no avail. Thanks!
