Chris! Posted May 24, 2012 Report Share Posted May 24, 2012 Hi All, Thought i'd let you know that Jason is concerned about the "sticky key" effect sometimes observed (e.g. when a key on the remote is pressed multiple times in quick succession resulting in a lot more scrolling than anticipated). This is due to the way Flirc currently implements how it receives a signal, Jason explains it beautifully below: Here is a quick tutorial: Remotes send out a 'packet of data' in the form of light pulses. These packets are separated by each other by ~40ms-120ms. That number is constant on each remote, but varies from remote to remote. When you press the button, the remote sends out a bunch of packets all with this fixed spacing (again, where the fixed spacing is different on each remote). So when you press a remote button, flirc actually may sees like 30 packets. If you are rapidly pressing a button, I need to distinguish if this is you holding the button down, or if you are just pressing it rapidly. It's not very easy to do, and I have a general concept that works for remotes, but will often feel 'sticky'. As you can see there are significant variables in there: As you can imagine and appreciate it will take a lot of Jason's work and (personal free) time, so your patience is appreciated - rest assured it's on his list, at the earliest after wake is perfected. Pleasant regards Chris 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
