repeat = 0 didn't work for you?
If not, try a number like repeat = 3 which means to only acknowledge
every 3rd keypress if it gets a bunch in a row. Different remotes
transmit at different rates so another number might work better for
you. I use repeat = 1 for one of mine and repeat = 2 for another.
