    I have used IR Server Suite for a few years and just now noticed something odd with it. I am using IRSS 1.4.2.4290 on Windows 7 64-bit. I use it to send commands to my Windows Media Center Sensor to change channels on my DIRECTV STB in NextPVR (NPVR).



    Say I want to change the channel to 55. I type two 5s on my keyboard. The blaster/sensor in front of the DIRECTV STB flashes when IRSS sends commands. Instead of it flashing once for a 5 and once again for another 5, it instead flashes a whole bunch of times, pauses, and flashes a bunch more times again. Sometimes it is too slow to change the channel correctly doing this.

    Why is it pulsing/flashing a whole bunch of times instead of just using the IR command learned from the remote for the DIRECTV STB and flashing once per digit entered?

    I was able to get this issue figured out.

    When programming the STB codes, DO NOT HOLD DOWN THE BUTTONS ON THE REMOTE!!!

    Just TAP them until the codes are learned.
