Disabling the up button as back button

I could've sworn I was able to disable "Up" from acting like a "Back" button before. I'm looking through the documentation again and I can't remember where I saw it.

Did I make that up or is it real? If so, can you point me to the documentation around that because I can't remember where it was.

Re: Disabling the up button as back button

What screen type are you referring to? roListScreen has SetupBehaviorAtTopRow.  Is that what you mean?

Vide playback and Springboard. Is the up button supposed to bring you back?

Generally speaking - yes, for historical reasons.
There was a time back then, when Roku remotes did not have a dedicated "Back" button and so the "Up" button was doing the job. So that's the default behavior of many of the ro-components. For some (but not all) of them, a method to optionally disable the behavior was added later.
