When I'm watching a *recording*, I expect Up/Down (which I do have
mapped to CHANNELUP/DOWN) to do nothing. When I'm watching LiveTV I
expect the channel to change (well, Browse the channels, but same
difference). The LiveTV behaviour *is* working correctly... from what
I remember; it has been a while since I used it.

I have PageUp / PageDown mapped to the skip forward / back 10 minutes,
and those are separate buttons on my remote. I have no need for
Up/Down to do it too.

(Mike, please don't interpret any of the above as an argument; I'm
just trying to explain what I mean from what I recall. It has been a
while since I removed those blocks of code. You did help me to find
them a couple of months ago... I don't have easy access to search the
archives at the moment or I'd find a link to exactly what I'm talking
