Vista Media Center:

I have this interesting problem where, no matter where I am in Vista Media Center, say browsing Music. If I press the "Green Button" on my remote, VMC takes me back home, as expected, but immediatly flicks back to where I was, and then home, and then where I was, and continues to do so until I press another button on the remote.

It will continue to do this, even if the remote is not aimed at the IR receiver, so I don't think the remote is sending multiple signals?

My remote is a Hauppauge media center remote that came with my WinTV Nova-T 500 (dual DVB-T).

Has anyone experienced this problem before?

After some playing I think somwhere along the lines the computer thinks im holding the button down. Someites it happens with the back button too. It's not the remote though, because even if I take the batteries out it keeps processing the command.
