I have noticed that my Motorola satellite receivers require more time
delay between repeated numbers. Try putting a 1 second sleep in your
channel change script
a second possibility if you didn't record your own lircd.conf, your
remote could have a toggle bit. This means the remote has two different
code sets and alternates between them for each button press. You can
check if only one codeset is recorded by running irw and seeing if every
press of the 5 button is recognized. If every 2nd button shows up, try
running irrecord again. (This would not apply to tuner card based IR
blasters, as they use a firmware based list)
