config = Key P CurrentWindow
>From the lirc docs:
"repeat tells the program what shall happen if a key is repeated. A value of
zero tells the program to ignore repeated keys. Any other positive value 'n'
tells the program to pass the config string every 'n'-th time to the
according application, when a key is repeated. The default for repeat is

As a matter of fact I just switched from the Hauppage remote (using the
serial port IR receiver) to the MCE USB remote (which I bought from Newegg
of course). I checked out the CVS version of lirc, built it, did modpobe
lirc_mceusb (once I got USB working), and was able to start up lircd and use
irw to verify I was seeing keypresses on the remote.
It's working reasonably well except the repeat rate is too fast - unless I'm
really quick about releasing the buttons on the remote, I almost always get
2 button presses. This is a hassle for things like "pause" since the second
But in any case, here's a .lircrc I worked up. It's not perfect, but if you
want to use it to start from, go ahead...
Note that I'm using irxevent to feed commands to myth. I haven't tried
"native lirc" support yet.
