I've been having the same kind of problems with Technotrend C-1500 and it's 
bundled remote (a grey one). I tried loading ir-common with repeat=0, but 
still it seems to take quite a long time before the keypress gets generated. 
It feels like I anyway have to invoke some kind of "repeat handling" to get 
the keypress through.

Then, if I keep pressing the key after one keypress has been generated, it 
sometimes generates no repeat keypresses, sometimes one or two more 
keypresses. And all this with repeat=0. As you might imagine, controlling VDR 
is a bit of a challenge right now. I had no problems with this remote before 
the recent changes to the IR handling.
