burke Posted April 5, 2013 Report Share Posted April 5, 2013 Hi guys :) Yes I know this has been discussed before, yes i know that keyboard repeat rate is controlled by OS but.... Currently I am running XBMC on top of Ubuntu minimal, before that it was XBMCbuntu and before that Openelec. What ever I tried it never worked, I would enter needed commands but nothing changed spped of keyboard and flirc was always same. Back when I was on XBMCbuntu I learned that keyboard repeat rate was "hardwired" inside XBMC - but i did not quite understand what it meant. I always used SSH to log into my XBMC machine and change setting from remote computer and that is way I did not understand what was happening. So to "problem". On my MBMC minimal I switch to terminal window and enter: sudo kbdrrate -r 2 -d 150 and keyboard in terminal really slows down, but if I switch back to XBMC nothing has append...speed is always the same. My conclusion is that signal is picked up by xbmc before OS can slow it down so it has no effect. :( Why I think it would be good? There are a lot of people using Openelec, XBMCbuntu and minimal (not sure how this looks on OSX and WIN OS) and lot of people use cheap remotes (like my self) which have no trannsmiter speed contol... My suggestion? _________________________________________________________________________________________ Would it be possible to implement some kind of script/ program /subroutine ...something inside flirc programming that would count number of continuous input signals and then forward every second or third to system? Sorry for my rubbish English :) 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
