What's the difference between the "Home" button and the "Back" button on the Vero remote?

Just got a Vero 4K, and first setup went great, updated to the latest OSMC with no issues.

But, both the “Home” and “Back” buttons seem to always just go back a screen (acting like the “Backspace” key on Kodi using a keyboard).

I would expect the “Home” button to always send me back to the Home Screen or Now Playing, regardless of how deeply nested into menus I might be, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Is something wrong with my system, or is this normal behavior?

Yes it is, but they are not identical. There is a difference, depending on which screen you are at.

So, I guess I could mess with the Kodi keymap files and make “Home” always go to the Home Screen, regardless of what screen is currently displayed.

You can use the add-on Keymap Editor to edit the functionality of all of the remote keys.


It’s been a while since I dived into Kodi, and I forgot about that add-on. Thanks.
