    Dear all,

    Tonight was my first HD-DTS concert with my AVR, U1, XBMC for Minix and film on NAS via SMB : Perfect ! Thanks allot all Minix HK guys !

    I have one issue with my new Logitech K400 plus RF Keyboard connected via USB dongle :
    I selected French for system country and French for my android keyboard, which is linked to azerty keyboard. This is properly selected by android, and duely confirmed by the "on screen keyboard" that effectively appears azerty, whiteout any problem, for selection of the letters with the remote for instance.

    Here comes the issue : the K400 plus Logitech keyboard is recongnized by the U1, but the typing remains qwerty...the problem is that I purchased a azerty keyboard and I need azerty caracters...so the A of my keyboard badly types a Q...showing that the keyboard is considered as qwerty, despite the system selections for azerty.

    I ran out of ideas for solving my problem.

    Who can help ?

    Yessss !!!!!!!

    Thank you, your are great !
    What you explained above is to be found in the "advanced setting", this is not directly avaiable neither in "country" nor "keyboard" settings, so it took time for me to understand your explainations, but it works PERFECTLY. (y)

    Actually you should find that there are two Settings options, one denoted by a Cog icon the other denoted by a Slider icon. The Advanced settings you talk about, accessible by selecting the Slider icon, are accessible by selecting the Cog icon! :)

    Right. Thanks again, everything is OK now.:)
    How can I avoid the virtual keyboard to appear on the screen with some app, since I don't need that any more... ? :confused:

    There is an option to switch it off in Settings, but in earlier firmware it caused problems. I haven't bothered to see if updates have corrected the issue!

    What I suggest is to use Null Keyboard app - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wparam.nullkeyboard&hl=en
    Once installed you will find in Settings, Null Keyboard, select it.
