Double Key Presses

What is "double key press"

In this case we'll start off with a description of the symptoms of double key presses:

For example: You press the down arrow once on your remote control and onscreen the selection moves down twice (rather than once)

This is an example of one press and flirc sending two.

 

Why is this happening

This happens because Flirc might actually think the user pressed two buttons because the infrared packets from the remote control are so far apart.

Increasing the interkey delay will tell flirc to wait longer before deciding the button was let go. 

 

How to fix it

Go to the advanced section of the GUI



Now, we will want to change the inter-key delay. If it's currently at zero, increase it. Increasing this value should help.

    I have the same issue. the problem is that when looking at my setting they were already at 5. I increased it to 6 but it did not help.

    Exactly the same here, Aviram. I have two remotes (one PC remote from ebay and one Sony vhs remote) and even with a delay of 7 I get multiple commands from one push. It seems that 7 is not enough.

    Same here. I have Harmony Ultimate and I can't properly pause the video in any player. Will this ever be fixed?
