I have this problem too, but it seems to always be in the Media
Library>>Watch Recordings when I want right arrow (from remote) to
delete a program. The symptom is no button are lit up and up/dwn doesn't
move the cursor. If I exit and try again it usually work.
Referring to a previous reply to your question: I'm using the viewer
that is standard too -- I assume that is mplayer. But, I don't see how
this is the problem because it seems to be random when this symptom occurs.
