So, have you had a chance to set this up yet? I'm still having "accuracy"
issues. I found a mode/code/program on my remote that plays nice with
irrecord (at least most of the time), but it's still not accurate. If I
just hold down a button, irw will show the right button most of the time but
other random buttons will be shown as being pressed intermittently. The
protocol is sony-style, and all of the button codes appear to be 3 digit
long hex codes in the generated lircd.conf file. It also seems like the
"mistakes" happen with keys with codes that share 2 of 3 digits of the
button hex code.
Has everyone else's streamzap been working 100% recently?
