    I often use my GTV with a regular wireless keyboard and mouse so I thought I'd add what I've found the key mappings to be from a normal keyboard to the Sony remote (and presumably the Logitech Revue but I don't have one of those).

    Windows Key = Search

    F1 = TV
    F2 = Home
    F3 = Back
    F4 = Menu
    F6 = TV in window
    F7 = Guide
    F8 = DVR
    F12 = 'Star button' (add bookmark, subscription, etc.)

    Home = Zoom in
    End = Zoom out

    Those are the one I've come up with. Concerning F1, F7, and F8, they all do the same thing on mine so I don't see how to distinguish them.

    No screenshot capability yet. When the app market opens then there might come an app to do so. With my setup however I do have the indirect capability of taking a screenshot. I have a Slingbox connected via an HDFury3. I can use my PC to take a Google TV screenshot as seen through my Slingbox.

    Another possibility is to use the Haupauge HD PVR to record anything on Google TV and even take screenshots. Connecting to a Google TV device and using a Haupauge HD PVR will also require a PC and an HDFury3.

    There is. It's the left power button, the one with BD/EXT written above it. It will also turn on and off a receiver if the AMP button has been selected.

    Esc = the Exit or Cancel command for your DVR

    on Dish Network receivers up and down on the Dpad mirror Channel up and down. For ease of use you can swap the channel up and down commands with page up down commands so that you don't have to the function key for the Page up and down.

    The tip above basically freed up to buttons for me which I then learned the bright/dim commands from my IR light switch allowing control over my lights from the keyboard

    I also swapped fast forward with skip forward and rewind with skip back

    What kind of lights do you have hooked up to your keyboard.
    I recently bought a logi illuminated solar keyboard.
    It didn't ..dawn.. on me until later.
    It didn't have a touchpad.

    How about a shortcut key to return to your home page in chrome?

    Typical Keyboard Keys:
    Home = Zoom in
    End = Zoom out
    Windows Key = GTV Search
    Application Key = GTV Menu

    Function Keys:
    F1 = Live TV
    F2 = GTV Home
    F3 = GTV Back
    F4 = GTV Menu
    F5 = Info
    F6 = Dual View
    F7 = Guide
    F8 = DVR
    F12 = GTV Bookmark

    Multimedia Keys:
    Volume Up = Volume Up
    Volume Down = Volume Down
    Play/Pause = Play/Pause
    Stop = Stop
    Rewind = Skip Back
    Fast Forward = Skip Forward

    Internet Keys:
    Media = GTV Settings
    Favorites = GTV Bookmark
    My Home = GTV Home
    Sleep = Power Off
    Back = GTV Back

    Has anyone discovered a way to skip ahead or back using the DVR? I can fast forward, but I'd like to be able to make a 30-second jump.

    That depends on your DVR, the Google TV devices only send the respective IR signals to your device as recorded from the Logitech Harmony Database. On the old Scientific Atlanta 8300HDC, I only had the option to Fast Forward or Rewind at iterative speeds. Since I replaced that Cable Provider DVR with the Tivo Premiere, I now have the ability to use the Skip Forward button to Skip 30 seconds.

    Thanks for the advice, but I meant with the Revue keyboard (I can do it with my DVR remote). Is there a shortcut that gives a 30-second skip?
