I don't remember seeing a reply to this. What does "evtest" report when you press a button? I had trouble with key repeat that I fixed by patching three places: the cx88-input.c driver in the kernel, DirectFB (linux-event-input or some such), and softdevice (video-dfb.c). The latter two fixes were integrated, but my kernel patch was just a crude hack: http://www.iki.fi/~msmakela/software/vdr/#cx88-repeat > It seems somehow that there's no minimum time between button presses > unless the X server is running.

An older version of the vdr-remote plugin was confused by type 0 events (IIRC), which were reported by the cx88 driver. However, that was fixed a few months ago after I reported it. I still don't use the plugin, because it seems to significantly lower the repeat rate. I prefer the built-in 114 ms repeat rate of the RC5 protocol.
