Controls does not work during Netflix plugin movie viewing

Found a bug.... (Edit.. maybe not).

Using the official Netflix in Media Center plugin, everything works such as navigating the movies, selecting a movie, etc..etc..

But once you start a movie, nothing works except button-back command.

button-stop, button-pause, button-fwd, etc.. do not work.

I connect via telnet to test, and after each command, I get a "204 Success" but nothing happens.

Again, only button-back works, which will stop the currently movie and go back to the movie listing page of Netflix. And again, can navigate Netflix just fine.

I do notice though that Netflix in Media Center, does not respond to keyboard shortcut commands during video playback either. (control p for pause, control shift f for fast forward)

So I'm guessing VMC Controller uses keyboard commands to make it function in media center, so Netflix not recognizing actual kb commands during movie playback, vmc controller won't work either.

So probably a Netflix in Media Center issue.

Anyone can test this and get the same result?
