I've configured my SoundGraph iMon remote control for lirc using the irremote
tool, and MythTV is accepting the remote commands.
However, apparently MythTV receives two keypress events. So, when I press,
e.g., the "Enter" button on the remote, MythTV thinks I've pressed the button
Setting "repeat = 2" (or any number, in fact) in the lircrc file doesn't help.
Here's what I've figured out:
Each keypress on the remote control causes at least two keypress events to be
sent; one event when the remote control key is depressed, a number of
periodic events while it is held down, and one event when the key is
The repeat count reported by irw is zero for the first and last event,
indicating that they are not repeat events (which makes sense, since the
first event is a key down event, and the second event is a key up event).
I assume that because lircd basically sends two events, the repeat count isn't
increased, and consequently MythTV cannot take advantage of the "repeat = 2"
statement in the lircrc file.
The question is then:
How can I make MythTV realize that the first event is a key down event, and
that the second event should be ignored?
Thanks for your help!
