[vdr] Problem with Remote Wonder and VDR :(

Hi there. thanks for the response.

I tried that option as well. When I started VDR it did not give me the 
screen to setup my control.
It instead skipped straight to showing a channel and it overlayed a large 
transparant grey square
over most of the window. Remote still did not work.
