I prefer the older "Watch Recordings" behavior too.   In 0.21, I could
press Enter to start playback, or right arrow to get the menu for more
options.   Since these actions covered 99% of my typical usage,
accessing this from the main key cluster (arrows+enter) was very

Now, in 0.22 I need to incorporate a new and seldom used key into the
most frequent navigation process.  The current behavior makes the
right arrow a duplicate of the left arrow, it switches selection over
to the category list.  I don't see what the motivation for changing
the behavior was.

There was mention of a patch in this thread, but the description I
read didn't sound like it restored the old behavior.  Is that correct?
