XBMC on android TV Boxes

I always knew about X-Box Media Center but I am only a heavy user for 6 months or so. I tried it on everything, from the Xbox to the pc to the Raspberry Pi and I recently got my hands on a dual core android tv box.  Everything works like a charm. The occasional buffering is there but I can’t even get my self to investigate where is the lag. My ISP, my router, Karma? No one knows.

Trying to watch Tottenham Arsenal and when is switch to the android box XBMC shows only a quarter of the screen. And it is the first time I manage to debug a problem straight away. I just googled

my daughter was playing with the keyboard and now XBMC shows part of the screen

And there it was. Another guy was having the same problem. If you accidentally press the \  (backslash) key on the keyboard XBMC goes to window mode. Pressing it again goes to fullscreen.

Just thought I should share this since everybody is using an XBMC android tv box now days especially after the DreamBox guys seem to be getting busted everyday.
