Using directional buttons to control an on-screen cursor is really a
pain.  The lack of speed control means that the cursor is always
moving too fast or too slow.  Remotes that have an accelerometer (as
in the Roku) can effectively control a cursor, but I wouldn't want to
try that with an MCE remote.

Possibly.  There may be a setting somewhere that disables it.  I
usually have a real keyboard handy so I might have disabled it years
ago and forgotten about it.
