Comment (by mythtv at dadeos.freeserve.co.uk):


 Sorry, I thought that JUMPFFWD/JUMPRWND inside a DVD menu was supposed to
 be a valid action (your patch didn’t exclude these). So I was considering
 the case where a key bound to a valid action was pressed, only a more
 valid action would ideally be chosen first (i.e. RIGHT as opposed to

 I agree that excluding all non-valid actions from inside a DVD menu is a
 better approach, I am just unsure as to whether it is possible to distil
 the valid actions down to a sufficiently small subset that results in no
 similar conflicts for other user’s configurations? (I’m still doing
 pattern matching when I look at the code, without having an in-depth
 understanding of what is going on, or intended to be going on ;-))

 As I mentioned, I haven’t debugged the exact behaviour yet but your patch
 does prevent certain actions from occurring, specifically the commercial
 skips (bound to Up and Down keys) however it did not enable the underlying
 functions of these keys (i.e. UP and DOWN).

 So, with you patch applied, UP does not result in a “Commercials not
 flagged” warning, but it does not result in the cursor in the DVD menu
 moving up either…
