[mythtv-users] Lirc & Harmony 525 Key repeat problem

I am using MythTV 0.24.1 on opensuse 11.4 and having problems with my Logitech harmony
525 remote, in that if I press any of the 4 arrow keys while going through menu selection
it skips 2-4 items, really making it impossible to use the remote.
I had been partly successful using the remote setup emulating an mce remote using the
mceusb lirc module on an older system, however I had a motherboard failure and
consequently upgraded this front end which drives the family tv.
The system is running opensuse 11.4 with kernel 126.96.36.199-31-desktop. As lirce is now
included in the kernel I am really a bit unsure as to where I can make any adjustements to
cause lirc to slowdown this key repeat rate.
I have access to the Logitech harmony website and have looked through the troubleshooting
process and have adjusted the settings as advised ( a range of 0 - 6 with zero being the
slower repeat setting) and updated the remote. This has had no effect, on changing the
repeat rate. I also read that there was a another profile for the mce settings and MCE
Special Edition, I loaded that onto the remote and again no material difference or
resolution to my problem.
As I see it the settings within the remote, are not having an effect on lirc handling this
repeat rate. I have also used the original MCE remote I had bought, an Hauppage (RC6 model
No:TSHA-IR01) this has the same key repeat problem.
I would appreciate any ideas on what I can do to resolve this. Is there a 'lirc' file that
can be adjusted that I may have missed?
I have lircrc in my mythtv directory & subsequent to this problem put lirc.conf in
/etc/lirc after reading a suse 11.4 & lirc discussion on the opensuse forum.
Thanks for any advice.
