> The problem:
> * Parental controls are set to default to level 1
> * Default view is Gallery Mode
> * When I enter watch videos, I am shown the files/folders that are
> appropriate for level 1
> * Pressing 4 should prompt for the Parental Pin, but instead highlights a

> highlights a different movie consistently, etc. )
> * I never get prompted for the pin and as a result, I can not change

> Changing the view from Browse to list, etc doesn't affect the problem.
> What is interesting, is that this doesn't happen on all of the frontends.

Can you connect a keyboard and see if you can reproduce the issue?  I
suspect an issue with the remote/lirc.  I know that in some modes, the
numbers will operate as though you were using the numberpad with numlock
off... so 1 would be end, 2 would be down, 3 would be pg down, and 4 would
be left.  Any chance this is what you are seeing?
