    Hi,

    button channel up/down on my remote (Duo 4k) don't work as I might expect.
    I would expect (when pressed) jump to next channel, but instead it triggers bouquet selection screen. While I'm in bouquet selection screen, pressing channel up/down has no effect.
    How can I customize behaviour of that button?

    You can customize your buttons, but when in the Bouquet menu you use the central arrow buttons, to navigate channels, and the OK button to select a channel.
    Your channel up/down button, when in the Bouquet menu, navigates backwards/forwards through the bouquets, which is very useful when you have numerous bouquets, on different satellites.

    If you use BH, as I believe, it as ALWAYS been so and if you want the normal behaviour, you have to use a different keymap.xml file, as the one I'm going to attach (zipped, of course, otherwise it wouldn't be possible to attach).
    It's OBH that use P+/P- the way you intend.

    Yes, but he said he expected the behaviour of zapping. Actually, this is what P+/P- does in every TVs or similar devices.
    So, if he wants this, he can do it by the modified keymap I attached.
    I forgot to tell diverman that

    1) the file must be copied in
    /usr/share/enigma2

    Before that, I suggest to keep a copy of the original as, for instance, keymap.xml.orig
    or something like that.

    2) Remember you have to put again your file in that folder after major updates, because it will be rewritten.
    3) After having transferred this modified keymap, remember to restart the GUI.

    Yeah, channel zapping looks like an idiom, since the cz-en dictionary does not provide meaningful translation.

    Thanks to all, it is BH 3.0.9.0 (2019-04-17-master). I will try provided keymap xml.

    I prefer BH style channel lists and buttons.
    Why ?
    This is not a TV set
    already a channel list with bouquets,bouquets with many channels
    If those channels are changed in the way that my Samsung TV is used
    I should press the button for five minutes,to get some channels.

    As everything in this world, this is subjective and I respect your opinion.
    For me this was on the most annoying behaviour of BH. After all, if the remote controls have printed a P it's because these key_s are meant for P+/P-, while bouquets are an extra (indeed a very comfortable feature, but I use them very occasionally, and probably the same do other user.).
    And yes, VU+ it's not a TV but what user does with it most of the times (and most of their time) it's... watching TV.
    But, as I said, everything is subjective and I don't claim it to be objective. And now this is a problem of the past, in my case.

    It's all about need, habit, and compromise.
    I remember when I was programming a dreambox remote to use it with VU + duo (old)
    After a while, I used to VU + remote.
    I forgot the dreambox.

    I can not imagine my Satlist without bouquets.
    In most I use only bouquets.
    I wonder how to use it without bouquets with so many channels and satellites .I never used that way.
    Well, we're not all used to the same.
    For me this is ideally all I can change with one finger.
    Satellite, channels and bouquets.

    Sorry but what is it that P+/P- do, since you do not what to change there current functionality ?
    For me P+/P- are just opening the channellist (Top) on the current bouquet.
    ( Perhaps we could have P+/P- do the same as the current "central buttons arrow left/right" )

    Best regards

    central buttons arrow left/right can change pages in SAT list
    central buttons up/down can change channels in SAT list
    P+/P- can change bouquets

    I wrote P+/P- simply because there is a P printed on my remote's model, the so called New Design, and +/- on the buttons.
    Actually, in the other one, the classic, there is printed "Channel" and +/- on the buttons.
