I recently bought a second hand Xbox 360 to use primarily as a Windows Media Centre extender.

There a few weird things about it...

In the Netflix app sign in, you have to double click the A button to select a letter when you are typing your log in details.

In the vevo app, it behaves as if the Move Left control is stuck down, even the controller works fine everywhere else.

In the smartglass app, the mouse cursor keeps sliding off the bottom of the screen, making it impossible to use. This is the same if I use the iPad app, or the Android.

A WMC remote doesn't work at all, even though I enabled "use both remotes" in settings.

Is there some sort of common factor to this, or are they all just bugs?

That's what I wondered, but weird that it only misbehaves in some apps.
