I've been a Flirc user for several years and was thrilled to find the update for XBMC recently. I updated to the latest GUI/Firmware 3 days ago. I'm finding that every time I press a button mapped to an Alt+ or Ctrl+ or Win+ combination, Windows responds as if it were several key presses (more than 3). SO my Alt+F4 closes a program...and the computer gets shut down too, Alt+Tab FLIES through several open tasks and is like a roulette wheel on what I'll land on.
Ctrl+ and Ctrl+Shift+ combinations do the same thing, so in Media Center, FF/REW go full throttle from the start, Record is impossible as well.
I'm pretty sure the Win+ button combinations do the same thing but it's not as easy to test.
I checked ALL the other buttons in programs or notepad or both and they work fine, single press. I tried the scale of inter-key delay from 0-6. I'm using a Harmony 880 and never had THIS problem before. I tested using both the actual key profiles in the GUI and the Full Keyboard, same result.
New clean config as of 09/16/14
Alt+ or Ctrl+ or Win+ = multiple key presses
in Firmware Bugs
Unless I'm doing something wrong you cannot map just Alt or Ctrl or Shift to test if its the modifier that's broken. I've mapped R, F, Tab, etc without modifiers and no abstract results. Alt+Tab used to work fine before the update, Alt+F4 was fine. But if I roll back firmware I'm afraid I will lose some functions that were 'fixed' in Firmware 3.0. Namely the WMC functions, even though they are still touch and go for me. If there was an easy way to change the keymap for WMC I'd just make arbitrary settings there as a workaround and not have to have modifiers at all.
XBMC uses r (or f) just fine, but WinMediaCntr uses CTRL+r or CTRL+SHFT+r (or f) and those are recorded multiple times.
Tab works fine, but Alt+Tab hits multiple times too
I'm convinced it's a problem with the modifiers. I've even used different commands from the remote that work fine for other (single) buttom mappings and still have the same problem when I map them to a key with a modifier.
