keyboard shortcuts / kodi shortcuts not working

edited August 10 in Plex for Kodi

As the title mentions...
I am running Kodi 17.3 with the latest Plex for kodi plugin (from the repo), however when I try to use my remote to control the video, the pause / play / stop works as expected, but the bigstepforwards / skip forwards does not work and I have to use the arrow keys on the remote to hightlight the correct button (fast forward) to start it going.

I am using the keyboard.xml to modify what each button does.. so wonder if that is impacting things I have :
<<< see below message >>>
I generally use the up / down / left / right for bigstep / etc and its not passing the WAF currently :smile:

Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated

Phil
