The offending C2 is a clone of my C2 , which functions OK, and no problems with repeat key time out, and NO ./config/lirc
The repeat timeout was OK with lirc-0.9.0 , but I have replaced lirc-0.9.0 with lirc-0.10.0 on BOTH C2s and mine is OK and my sons is not.
APT update & upgrade was run last friday so the other C2 is up to date.
I did set up port forwarding on my sons router, but although that is running the same software as mine, it looks as if his ISP has a firewall
which is stopping me being able to ssh the other C2. But I can park outside his house and use his wifi to gain access to the C2
I'm also suspicious of lirc documentation
looking at updating from older versions you find this:-
Remove the config files, if you don't need them anymore:
rm -rf /etc/lirc/
rm -f ~/.config/lircrc
That would explain why I dont have them on my C2
When I installed lirc-0.10.1 on my sons C2 , I copied the whole directory /etc/lirc from my C2 and use SFTP to copy on to my sons C2 in to ~/Public
then moved them to /etc.
It sorta half works, it slows down the key repeat, but not enough ,
