No, i dont have this issue. irw reports '1' key instantly. If i keep the button pressed the first response is instant. However, the second response is delayed and then i get a continous stream. I think this is the intended behavior.
The above was with regular imon mode. I was able to get mceusb mode using
ir-keytable -c -w /etc/rc_keymaps/imon_mce
I also noticed that an mceusb remote will only be able to coldboot the system once the above has been set. Otherwise, out of the box LCD/IR doesnt recognise the mceusb power signal.
