Skip Button Doesn't Skip (1 Viewer)

I have an unusual problem. I've been running MediaPortal without any issues, and a couple days ago an odd issue popped up.

While watching previously recorded TV shows, I usually press the skip button on my MCE remote to jump ahead the default 15 seconds. Hell, sometimes maybe even more! :) Anyways, my skip button on the remote no longer skips ahead.

When I press the right (skip) button, MediaPortal plays the sound as it should when I press a button, but that's it. No skipping. I figure it's receiving the IR signal because it does play the audio sound of a button press. I've checked the skip/jump settings to make sure they didn't get messed up, and all looks well. Batteries test good. The remote's mapping looks correct. I've powered off/on the whole system just to make myself feel better, and no difference.

Any ideas of things to check would be appreciated. :D
