repeat - tells the program what shall happen if a key is repeated. A value
of zero tells the program to ignore repeated keys. Any other positive value
'n' tells the program to pass the config string every 'n'-th time to the
according application, when a key is repeated. The default for repeat is

Generally speaking, I set my repeat to a value of 2 for all keys.  Though,
for some (like exit, last, etc), you probably want it set to 0.

Also, I somehow lost the ability to tune to a channel via the program

Well, by default, when you hit 'enter' on an item in the guide, it will
bring up the info menu for that entry.  There's a frontend configuration
item somewhere (I believe in the Guide configuration settings) that
instructs Myth to tune to the channel if 'enter' is pressed on it, which is
likely the behaviour you want.
