FWIW, I have an Aiwa VCR which has always behaved oddly when using the
slim remote.

It's the original Rega Planet which is now used as transport to an
external DAC. I don't ever use the CD player's remote, so I wonder
if I
can yank a wire internally to disable it.

For grins I just broke out the Planet's remote control and sure
enough,
most of the buttons on it do some some equally odd things to the
Squeezebox.
