System as below - bought cheaply to run Media Portal for DivX playback only. Installed Media Portal 1.0.1 - new to this version/family, used the older less-pretty version in the past (Version 0-point-something)

Currently using the keyboard to navigate the menus. When I start a video playing it plays okay, but then Media Portal stops responding to keyboard commands (e.g. spacebar to stop/start, arrow keys to skip backwards/forwards). Keyboard responds again if I move the mouse and click on the playing video, or do an Alt-Tab on the keyboard first. Seems as if Media Portal is losing focus and the keyboard commands are ignored until Media Portal is selected again. Annoying. Thoughts?
