thank you for the quick reply

if i understand correctly lircd doesn't use the lircrc (or does it ?), and i am reading directly from /dev/lircd without using any other tool that came with the lirc package. i couldn't find any explenation to the values in lircd.conf. where can i find them ?

Did you set the REPEAT= value in your lircrc file to '2'? That would
be my guess.

If not that then possibly it's some default value in the /etc/lircd.conf file?
