Glad to see I'm not the only one falling behind on my programming work.  At
least yours won't cost you your job!  Thanks for the advise.

This is a known issue.  It's been on my todo list to track down for a
while but I've not really looked into it.  A really simple work around
is to bind the play button on your remote to the PLAY key within Myth.
Going from FFWD / REW to Play doesn't have this issue.  By default PLAY
doesn't have a keybinding so you'll need to set one up with MythWeb or
