Let's say there are some settings that are changed frequently. For example, changing the preferred audio language from English to French back and forth, you would have to navigate: Settings->Audio->Audio Preferred Language->French (or English). Another example would be to change the output resolution. This has to be done by navigating: Settings->Display Type->1080p TV. A third example is to connect to a different network: Settings->Network->Setup Connection->Wireless->DifferentNetwork.
Instead of going to the settings menu every time is needed, it would be nice if shortcuts to any frequently used item in the settings tree could be created. I can think of two possibilities:
1) The possibility of programing a "soft" shortcut, sort of like the "TV off" in the home screen.
2) Configure one of the "1" or "2" programmable buttons to do a specific action in the settings menu tree.
