    Lightbulb Pioneer steering remote with IRman question

    Just wondering if anyone can second this. I have a pioneer steering wheel remote and a self-made IRman.

    The IRman works great with all my remotes, including the pioneer steering wheel one (great!) the only thing is holding down any of the buttons does not re-send IR signals to the IRman unit.

    This means to adjust the volume for example i will need to click-click-click-click rather than just hold down the button to adjust (you get the idea).

    its not a huge problem, if at all (i guess it stops extra unwanted key sends at 80kmph! maybe this is the idea?) with my current software/new TFT display version software I am writing, but I was just curious if other people with a pioneer steering wheel remote have the same behaviour.....

    thanks in advance guys...

    Yeah I have the same problem. You can adjust the timeout of the UIR to 0.25 to ease the pain a tad, but it is really the lag of the IR bitstream getting decoded and sent down the comm port that costs the time, then you software has to decode it, and it all adds up to slow (unlike firmware players) action.

    Try and fiddle with the timeout, but apart from that.... press press press press press.

    hmm I think this is a remote control issue. Not the receiver. One of my remotes when I press a button and hold it down, only sends the signal once. While other remotes send it one after another... maybe im wrong.
    I thought I'd share this since I used 2 diff remotes with same software/hardware settings.

    the software timeout in VB or whatever you are using. The major hiccup is it can't decode it fast enough, so it doesn't matter if ur remote pulse streams or not (well that's what I found anyway).
