The ITV context shouldn't really be in separate context at all. Those keys are 
available constantly during playback as MHEG is 'always on' and as long as 
ITV is enabled in the OSD settings, those keys will be processed before 
the "TV Playback" context. (See line 2603 where interactive key presses are 
passed to ITVHandleAction).

In the UK pressing "Menu Text" brings up the main menu and "Menu Red" brings 
up contextual information, this might be the page associated with the show or 
advert you are watching or the main menu in all other cases.
