    @edterbak I've updated the installer link on the first post.
    All your issues with button repeat should be gone.
    The only buttons supporting repeat with the new configuration are volume and channel increment/decrement.

    Ok thanks.
    I will install this build tonight.

    Are arrow repeats supported as wel? You dont mention that, but I think you have that as well :)

    Arrows are not handled by HID they come in as keyboard events so they will repeat just like the rest of your keyboard.

    Stephane,

    Tested more.
    What I see is that Generic HID does repeat back/pause button, while MCE remote does not.
    I am using a harmony remote, maybe that makes a difference. But I don't know.

    Here is a log of the test with Generic HID. Hope it tells you something more than just these words.

    [edit]
    sorry for being slow in response. Im in the process of buying a house. :) time consuming.

    That's really odd. I'm not seeing this with the latest intaller. Did you customize your actions on your last test run? Search for generic-hid.xml file in MP programdata and delete it, then try again.

    sorry, no. nothing.
    plain install and then switch between the two. :(
    It is strange indeed.

    Are you sure you did not change the mapping last week for instance?
    Can you search for copy of a file named generic-hid.xml on your installation drive?

    Looking at your logs it looks like you have the AppCommands enabled which could explain your duplicate events.
    Though possible you should not be using "Media" together with "HID" unless you know what you are doing :)

    Just disable Media.

    ahhh.. YES... you are right
    I see now I have Media enabled indeed together with HID. . So this is user error.

    Now tested again with media unticked: Issue with repeating is gone. 100% ok now. Great!

    But: I have a BT keyboard with media keys, togeter with a logitech remote. So obviously, I think I need to enable both. (proven incorrect now) THis is unclear from within the configuration.exe. I think there should be some more information like popups/F1help which help the user to prevent this error. Maybe a popup if both are enabled making the user aware of possible issues. OK/Cancel. Just thinking out loud here. You know what is best/easiest.

    Long story short. (user error) issue gone.
