Looking for a xbmc guru. Our CD carousel player died and I got sick of our toddlers using the CD collection as frisbees and have opted for a xbox being fed by ethernet from the main pc as a music/photo centre.

To make it as wife friendly as possible I'm trying to load up our MX-500 remote to control the xbox using the xbox dvd remote reciever.

The only problem I have come across is I can't seem to replicate the button on the xbox dvd remote to access the playlist screen on xbmc which allows you to shuffle your playlist.

I have gone through the wiki manual

On the game pad you select your tracks using the Y button and the black button then takes you to the shuffle page. On the dvd remote you use the 0 button to select the track but the title button just brings up the context menu, not the shuffle page.

Am I approaching this the right way?

The playlist screen is the top item on the OSD menu that you get when you press the menu button in fullscreen mode, and it has a shuffle option on the left-hand side. You should be able to get straight there from browsing music files by pressing Display then Menu, I think.

Thanks that worked but not quite as user friendly as hitting the 'y' button and then 'black' on the gamepad.
