 In the end you would have to press a key to at least navigate any on 
screen menu to choose the action you want. So, how about this, once you have 
an episode selected rather than having to press 'I' (or whatever button you
have programmed on the remote) you just press the Right arrow again to
get the same menu as if you had pressed 'I' (Play, delete, cancel, etc).

 Here is a patch to do just that against 0.14
