Technically, in both cases, you passed through all these menus without 
noticing, and with just one key press. VDR creates all these menus, but 
instead of showing them, the next nested menu is created on top of them.

Changing this behavior would require rewrites of larger parts of the 
menu handling (first case) or is almost impossible (second case).
