When opening Netflix page the overlay "press A to begin" occurs. After that, any function of the controler is ignored completely.

Nice work, but it no longer works with their new UI. They must have changed their classes on you. +Brian Ernst: Part of the html5 controller api is that it requires the user to input a key press in order to initialize. The author just took the extra time to make it an attractive notification in stead of just expecting users to "know" they have to initialize the script.

I really like the keyboard navigation. Should be able to use with remote. But I cant get rid of the Press A to Continue. 5 stars without that.
