If this is happening with the serial IR receiver in MythTV, you can
verify this by using irw from the command line. In this instance you
need to check and adjust the repeat values in your lircrc as Paul

If this is happening with the serial IR transmitter (which is
controlling an external cable box via IR) you might want to check/post
your channel change script and check your freqid values in the channel
