Hmmm. I figured out why I had the UP/DOWN keybinding switched ---
While watching a recorded show, I use CHANNELUP/CHANNELDOWN to "JUMP"
forward and backwards. When used in that manner, the behavior is
backwards: CHANNELUP causes a jump BACKWARDS, while CHANNELDOWN
causes a jump forwards.
Since I don't watch live tv, I "fixed" the problem by swapping the
CHANNELUP/CHANNELDOWN keybinding in "TV Playback".
