I'm trying to create a script to change channel and assign it to a key. I can do the change channel bit but it opens the EPG and shows the script running, switches channel but keeps the EPG open.

How do I close the EPG?

Which image are you using as the hotkey feature is included with most?

I have the hotkey feature but I can't seem to set a hotkey to zap a channel, the only way I can see to do it is via getting the hotkey to run a shell script.

Reading your first post again it sounds like you have set a button to zap but what you need to set it to is zap & exit.

I don't see an exit option to add on the hotkey setup screen, so was tryig to add soemhting to the shell script but not sure what it needs to be
