Using the remote plugin with a /dev/input/eventX setup for a

button presses very often are detected as multiple button presses.

I don't remember seeing a reply to this.  What does "evtest" report
when you press a button?

It appears to be correct, it's just too fast, see below

It seems somehow that there's no minimum time between button presses
unless the X server is running. Anyone got a clue about what's
missing when using directfb? (I've turned off all directfb input

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.

I think it's the build in 114ms repeat rate that I find too fast, often being interpreted as two button presses. I tried using evtest both with the console, which yields additional keyrepeats after just 100ms (i guess it's exactly 114ms), and under X11, where there's a delay of about 250ms before any additional keyrepeats. The repeat rate seems to be the same in both environments. However, it seems that after running X11, the delay is set to about 250ms also when running evtest in the console.

I found this article interesting: http://www.linuxjournal.com/ articles/lj/0107/6429/6429l12.html . It describes how one can set the repeat rate and delay using the EVIOCGREP ioctl. It would be interesting to get in a patch into the remote plugin to do this, but for now I'm just using the attached small program.
