I can't claim credit - that's an mplayer key :) I should add that to
the "help" for "Radio".

Yes. While a radio station is playing with the "Radio" menu, mplayer is
in the foreground, so only mplayer keys have an effect. In the "Random"
menu, INX is using the "plait" program, so on return from elinks after
a search you get a new menu that is in the foreground and functional.
This is an effect of the software being used at the time. It might be
possible to introduce a more consistent interface, but I haven't tried.

Correct. Thanks, I'll add it under "h" for "help".

Yes, I think that is as it should be, don't you? :-)

I guess that would only be relevant if INX was hard-drive installed? So
far the inxtaller is a bit on the primitive side and not advertised, so
that probably isn't an issue.
