Is there a more up to date list of Hotkeys than the following post?
At the moment I'm wondering if there is a Hotkey for initiating a Search. If there are hotkeys for things like toggling/cycling Subtitles/CC or cycling Audio Channels (eg, different languages) I'd be interested in knowing those as well. I might think of a few more later that'd be useful, but at the moment those are what I'm most interested in.
Overall though everything works great with my default remote settings, which is very nice.

For others reference:
I don't currently see anything that would map to the Search function. I propose we use CTRL-F, as that is a standard method (in Windows, at least).
When I have more time I'll see if I can make a list of the commands that seem to be currently mapped to which hotkeys and post that here.

Awesome -- thanks!
An addition for the Wiki (would have done a PR, but wasn't seeing the usual easy method of doing that for some reason):
Under "General Navigation"
control-d: Context Menu
Also, control-shift-a (cycle through audio tracks) does not currently work for Emby Theater (Windows Desktop) on my install. The wiki indicates not all things are supported on all platforms, so I don't think the wiki needs any changing. But wanted to be sure you were aware. I like that you indicate that it will "cycle" through audio tracks (ie, each hotkey press will go to the next audio track, with no need for pulling up the menu), as that is my preference as well (and the user can always go to the menu itself using the direction pad if they want to view the list of audio tracks). When/if Ctrl-U is added for Subtitles/Closed Captions, I'd be interested in it working the same way (ie, cycle through).
For each of those, could we maybe have the Audio Track Title (or Subtitle Title) briefly display on the screen for each keypress? Not a must-have, but might be nice.
I finally found the virtual key for Search in my remote software, so I'm good to go with that (ie, no need for the Ctrl-F hotkey I mentioned earlier).

I am starting a wiki article to document supported input:
im currently evaluating emby and wondering why those keyboard shortcuts does not work for me? My setup is:
WMC -> serverWMC -> emby Server
MacOSX with current Firefox and using web browser which points to my local emby server.
Windows 10 with current Firefox and using web browser which points to my local emby server.
When I try to use one of the described shortcuts, for exampe Space to pause and resume this happens:
Client 1: Nothing. Doesn't matter which shortcut
Client 2: Returns back to the previous page!?! And then I see the Ajax spinner for a while... then I can play at the beginning again.
Doesnt matter if I use Live TV or playing a local Video...
Thank you for help!

I know that not all shortcuts work in all clients, so it may be that those are not implemented in the web client. Have you tried Emby Theater (Windows Desktop version)?
Also, when you say web browser, do you mean just viewing your library from within the Emby server browser interface, or do you mean Emby Theater for Web (which I've not used, but I believe has some differences in code)? I would guess that the Emby server browser interface (for browsing your library) is not going to have much if any hotkey support.

I just point Firefox to the my servers IP address with port 8096 and using emby. Thought that "Emby Theater for Web" is this GUI.
Im a bit confused now... When "Emby Theater for Web" is an own client, how can I access it?
@Luke: Do you need more setup information? Im running all the latest SW (MacOS, WIndows 10, Emby, Firefox)

@SpecialAgent. Ok, so you're using the built-in web app. This is not Emby Theater. Emby Theater is a newer app designed for use on large screens. You can play with the web app here:
There are also native deployments of this on Windows, Xbox One, and soon Raspberry Pi, Linux, etc.

I use a FLIRC for remote control and its software maps remote input to any key combo. So I've got a remote control commandmapped to Win-1 to launch Emby Theater, among others.
Thanks for the shortcut Wiki it was very helpful.
Is there a shortcut for cycling through Subtitles (ie Close Captioning).
Any idea how to add the shortcut to cycle through audio to a Harmony Remote. There isn't exactly a Command for Ctrl-Shift-A
