This test is available for Raspberry Pi 2/3 and all Vero models only.
We’ve had a few users recently reporting that remotes feel too slow to respond when repeatedly scrolling through menus. We’re keen on improving the response, but would like to get a consensus from a few users before we make any changes in an OSMC update.
This seems to affect all remotes using eventlircd as a uinput aggregator.
While Kodi also has a repeat button filter; we have one in eventlircd to prevent duplicate presses.
This was originally used to prevent sporadic behaviour when using highly sensitive TSOP IR receivers on Raspberry Pi GPIO but it may make sense to revisit this.
Test #1: this reverts some of the changes made to the repeat filter in late 2015. A repeat filter will still be active; but will be less aggressive.
- Login via the command line.
- Run the following commands:
wget "http://download.osmc.tv/debs/241059302-armv7-eventlircd-osmc-no-repeat.deb" -O eventlircd.deb sudo dpkg -i eventlircd.deb rm -f eventlircd.deb sudo reboot
Test #2: this disables the eventlircd repeat filter entirely. Try this if Test #1 doesn’t get the results you expect.
- Login via the command line
- Edit this file: /lib/systemd/system/eventlircd.service
Changing this line:
ExecStart = /usr/sbin/eventlircd --evmap=/etc/eventlircd.d --socket=/var/run/lirc/lircd --repeat-filter --release=_UP -f
ExecStart = /usr/sbin/eventlircd --evmap=/etc/eventlircd.d --socket=/var/run/lirc/lircd --release=_UP -f
And then reboot.
We’re looking forward to your feedback.
