We’re doing a number of things right now for DirecTV in a future release. As part of that, we’re re-evaluating some items that have been around for a while. For DirecTV, we have provided a set of commands on the Virtual Remote labelled “NOREPEAT”. The purpose of these was to force those buttons into a mode where it was impossible to repeat because due to a DirecTV software bug or hardware bug at the time, they would sometimes repeat too many times.
We have not heard from any users having that issue in a very long time, and we do not see it in our DirecTV boxes on-site. So we’re wondering if that issue is still extant or possibly was fixed by DirecTV via software updates.
If you do use today the NOREPEAT commands and know that you need them, please reply to this message or contact support with your DirecTV model number and any other comments you may have on that.
