    Curious Flirc-er
  1. Yep, it's still happening. It seems to be different in boxee itself compared to the normal X desktop. in X, once a key is stuck it will keep firing. In boxee, it seems to only trigger a handful of times. Not sure if that's a difference in the input handling, or if boxee has builtin filtering for accidental repeats. I've hooked up a button to shut down mythbuntu without having to navigate the desktop, so I no longer have to deal with X much. But it still gets in the way of pausing videos a lot - instead of pausing, it'll often cause "pause" to fire a bunch of times, which actually speeds up
  2. Thanks Jason, I tried upping the interkey delay to 7 (it was on 6 originally), but couldn't detect any change (I still get stuck keys). Just in case the original 6 was too high, I also tried setting it to 2, but that didn't have a noticeable effect either. What would happen if it were to send multiple NULLs after each key, as a workaround? Or at least to check whether that's the problem. Is that plausible? Is there anything else I can do to try and prove whether that's the problem or not?
  3. aenima99x: I think that's probably a different problem - sounds like random keypresses, if it happens when you haven't touched the remote. My problem is whichever button I press keeps being pressed over and over until I press a different button. Aside: have you tried closing the curtains? My wii remote goes a bit mad when it's too bright outside and I have the curtains open.
  4. Thanks Jason, I checked dmesg, but there was nothing interesting - no new messages appeared when the keys got stuck. Here are the last messages anyway: [ 11.927379] USB Video Class driver (v1.0.0) [ 11.964379] type=1400 audit(1322894267.482:6): apparmor="STATUS" operation="profile_replace" name="/sbin/dhclient" pid=672 comm="apparmor_parser" [ 11.982704] eeepc_laptop: TYPE (2000000) not reported by BIOS, enabling anyway [ 11.990796] type=1400 audit(1322894267.510:7): apparmor="STATUS" operation="profile_load" name="/usr/sbin/mysqld" pid=674 comm="apparmor_parser" [ 11.999
  5. using the `xev` program on both my media center machine (laptop running mythbuntu 11.04) and my ordinary machine (desktop running vanilla ubuntu 11.10), I can see that: On the laptop only, sometimes pressing a button normally will cause repeated events to be sent until the next button is pressed (after which *that* button may be stuck on indefinitely). At other times it's fine, but it often seems to get stuck in this mode - i.e once a keypress starts repeating, future key presses probably will too. With the same flirc, remote & config, running on my desktop, I have not been able to g
