You are right, but I didn't ask to change that. If I open the the main menu
and then navigate to any submenu (e.g. Recordings) and then open a
recording's info by pressing "blue" (IIRC) and _now_ press "back" it's
absolutely logical that I return to the recordings menu. But if I watch a
recording and press "info" I don't expect that "back" shows the recordings
I mean that the "back" key should never bring me to a menu I didn't pass
In recordings menu pressing a "shortcut" key to run a reccmd for that
recording (for example "3" key) I see the reccmd's output. Now I press
"back" and what do I see? No, it's _not_ the recording's menu where I
pressed "3". I see a listing of defined reccmds.

I was talking about pressing the "info" key without an open OSD.
I hope I could make it more clear now...
