I’m a huge fan of the Vero4k, I have three - one for each of the televisions in the house.
Two of the three are using the supplied external Infrared (3.5mm) extender and were both working well until recently (the other is using CEC with the TV remote).
One unit has recently stopped working correctly, in the GUI the infrared (Logitech) remote works but now loses a few key presses. When playing media the remote is almost useless and can take up to 20 presses to respond.
I’ve tried swapping the external Infrared adaptor (3.5mm) and remotes, but the problem persists, which makes me think it’s either hardware or software on this particular unit.
All three Vero4+ devices are running the same version of software as follows:

I’ve ordered an external USB Infrared adaptor which I expect to resolve the problem, but I would love to hear if you have any suggestions on troubleshooting or debugging the failure of the Infrared?
