Duplicate remote keypresses (with RC6)

Continuing the discussion from Today's update killed my WMC remote:

Had to post to a new topic since the old one was closed. For everyone having this issue, DBMandrake’s solution above does work but just needs to be added to /etc/rc.local so it runs on startup otherwise the fix is lost after a reboot.

Here is my /etc/rc.local

#!/bin/sh -e
# rc.local
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
# By default this script does nothing.

# Sleep to allow other services to run first
sleep 20

# Set network to 100M as Vero doesn't work with 1000M
ethtool -s eth0 speed 100 duplex full autoneg on

# Switch remote settings to LIRC only to prevent duplicate keypresses
ir-keytable -p lirc

exit 0

To someone on the OSMC team - is this something that can be fixed in a future update so this doesn’t have to be done manually? (The same for setting the network speed back to 100M on the Vero - see Vero network speed - choppy playback)


I’ve made a note of the RC6 issue on our bug tracker so it should get fixed at some point in a future update.
