    So i have the update on my Sony Blu ray and im lovin it so far. However i have a few questions. I did mess around with it early this morn since i had to go to work so maybe these are obvious answers. Sorry in advance.

    How do you set the shortcuts on your keyboard? (I had it set up before but the shortcuts no longer work example: Search key + N used to take me to netflix)

    How do you browse files off a USB drive? (I am able to play videos off the USB but i can not figure out how to view the files.. even with a 3rd party folder app)

    File Expert (on the Market) can view files, it should be able to view the USB files. The drive may be under /mnt folder.

    Thanks! You always seem to have the answers hehe. Do you know what happened to the "Whats on" feature? it would show you whats on all your channels.. i dont see it anymore.

    You're welcome. Glad I could help. I believe Google has given up on "What's on" in favor of the "TV & Movies" application.

    Are you talking about the keyboard shortcuts for applications? If you're referring the [Search]+[A-Z, 0-9] key combinations then I believe that was not included with this version. One of my biggest complaints about this version is that they seemed to have used the Phone/Tablet interface and ripped out all of the handy keyboard shortcuts and customizations which made using a keyboard with Android a friendly user experience.

    same here... search+n/m et al were so useful. Pity if they have removed shortcuts.
