  1. Not yet - the reason the new firmware hasn't gone stable yet is because of this issue - Jason is working on it but as it's an issue that he can't easily re-create, it's taking additional time (and we have full time jobs).


    Jason is working on it though.


    1. Get a harmony remote, configured to use the flirc device provide as part of the XBMC activity

    2. Use xbmc with it

    3. Switch harmony activities and xbmc idle for a few hours

    4. Change activity back to xbmc and you should have the key repeat issue.


    Also, for the record I bought a recommended Raspberry Pi power supply (5V 2A) and I still get the key repeat issue. No other devices plugged into the Pi. I also had this problem when I used XBMC with a desktop PC.

  2. This looks fine. I'll push an update soon that hopefully addresses this.

    @timmeh, are you using harmony too? The harmony flirc profile?

    Which harmony do you have?


    Yep I'm using a harmony 650 I believe, with the harmony flirc profile.


    If it's the matter of changing the inter-key delay on the flirc and harmony remote what should teh adjustments be. I've tried pretty much everything I can find on the matter and nothing seems to work. Plus the flirc_util issue makes it doubly hard to resolve.

  3. I'm also having this issue. The new firmware seems to have triggered it. Now I get key repeats constantly and it makes the remote unusable.


    flirc_util can no longer connect to the flirc either, reporting this error on the issue of any command:

    Warning: cannot open USB devicedevice disconnected, can't run command

    Strange because the OS seems to pick it up fine. From dmesg:

    usb 1-1.3: new low-speed USB device number 7 using dwc_otg

    This is on the raspberry pi also
