I think that the version in Thierry's repository should contain
the missing key repeat functionality that Thierry added in June.
This should help to get the irrecord running again.

Could you check what is the firmware version in your device ?
Check for the "bcdDevice" keyword with lsusb -v -s <busid>:<devnum> I had
way too many problems with 1.06 firmware version, but the
newer 1.08 seems to be a little bit better in stability.
I do think that this device is certainly not the most stable tuner on
earth but if you don't do suspend/resume with it,
it should work quite fine.
