I've just started using a pulse eight adaptor for my ubuntu x64 media center with a Seiki SE40FO04UK TV, and am finding the arrow/select buttons slow and difficult to use:

If I press the same key multiple times (with < around 0.5s delay), only the first press is registered, no matter how many times I repeatedly press the key:

TRAFFIC: [ 92979] >> 01:44:02
DEBUG: [ 92979] key pressed: down (2)
DEBUG: [ 92980] >> TV (0) -> Recorder 1 (1): user control pressed (44)
TRAFFIC: [ 93047] >> 01:45
DEBUG: [ 93047] key released: down (2)
DEBUG: [ 93048] >> TV (0) -> Recorder 1 (1): user control release (45)
TRAFFIC: [ 98890] >> 01:45
DEBUG: [ 98890] >> TV (0) -> Recorder 1 (1): user control release (45)

If I hold the same key I get the same behaviour:

TRAFFIC: [ 338860] >> 01:44:02
DEBUG: [ 338860] key pressed: down (2)
DEBUG: [ 338861] >> TV (0) -> Recorder 1 (1): user control pressed (44)
TRAFFIC: [ 338928] >> 01:45
DEBUG: [ 338928] key released: down (2)
DEBUG: [ 338928] >> TV (0) -> Recorder 1 (1): user control release (45)
TRAFFIC: [ 342954] >> 01:45
DEBUG: [ 342954] >> TV (0) -> Recorder 1 (1): user control release (45)

The led on the tv blinks repeatedly in both situations.

I'm assuming that I can't get any more inputs (since either the ir remote or the tv is rate-limiting the inputs?), but an ok workaround for me would be to have kodi auto repeat the input when I've held the button down. I've seen references to "button_repeat_rate_ms", but can't see this in my peripherals.xml, is this option not available for pulse eight adaptors? My kodi version is: "16.1 Git:c327c53 Media Center Kodi"

I don't mind hacking something together and recompiling, but if there's anything obvious I've missed that would be much easier.

You could try adding this pull request: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/11222
I've only tested it on raspberry pi, but it may work on pulse eight adaptor.
