I too have a problem with a Harmony remote emulating a MCE remote, but
my problem sounds a little different. All works well, but every now
and then it behaves as though an arrow button has stuck down: an
attempt to skip will do multiple skips, repeating until I press again.
Also an attempt to move down in the menu can leave the menu rolling
continuously. It doesn't seem to be the remote: I can put my hand
over the transducer and the menus keep rolling. It's as though
"button down" and button up" commands are being used and the up
is being lost, but I didn't think any part of the system worked
that way. Anybody else see that.
