When I'm watching a video and hit the play/pause on my apple remote, while I like the controls which pop up, giving me access to next/pause/stop/etc, what I really want is for the video to pause. Having to always hit pause twice is starting to train me, so that I now often pause+restart my cable box in one action.
That said... thanks heaps for all the work on boxee. For an alpha product the number of problems I'm having so far is very encourageingly small. Great job.
