For what's worth, in my Mythbuntu gnome desktop
System->Preferences->Screensaver (which you can also access from the
command line with gnome-screensaver-preferences) I DO NOT have a
check by "Activate Screensaver when CPU Idle". When I do a ps -A |
grep gnome I DO see a process ID associated with the
gnome-screen-sav. But since installing Josh's replacement
libmythavformat file, I haven't experienced any IR Remote Button
Presses delays. So here at least, it seems sufficient just to NOT HAVE
a check by "Activate Screensaver when CPU Idle". I never see the
screensaver activate so I assume that my entry in the gui has prevented
the screen saver from activating/running.
So I've made all the corrections suggested by Josh.
1. Screensaver is configured not to activate
2. Option "UseEvents" "True"' in the "Device" section of
3. Replaced libmythavformat with Josh's new and improved file.
So far, I haven't had any "IR Remote Button Press Delays". This is
with myth version 18722.
