You're right. I fixed the foundation code but forgot about little details like using it... :-)

I disagree, for several reasons:

1) The remote is not like the keypad. It doesn't have the same buttons.

2) We must separate keypad events from remote events to support proper keylock.

3) The remote is not used in many places. Adding a simple case to the places it is used in is not a big problem.

Because only players have a stop button...

I've checked in another fix so the remote control works again now. I'll fix the keylock issue too.
