WinLIRC in conjunction with Girder is great software, but I seem to have
hit a strange bug. I'm currently using an IR receiver from a Pinnacle
PCTVpro along with a Philips 7 "function" universal remote. Anyhow... I
have 6 remote controls defined in my philips.cf file, and no matter
what, 2 of the remotes behave strangely if I have all of the remote
definitions in the config file. What happens is that one or two of my
remote modes will be perceived by WinLIRC to be sending a single repeat
message separated by a pause of about 1 second. Depending on the order
of the remotes in the config file, different remotes will be affected by
the "repeating message" problem. I can attach my remote config file if
it would help to debug this issue (starting winlirc with /d spits out no
abnormal messages), I currently have removed two configurations from my
combined config and 5 of my 7 remote modes are working without a problem
(two of my remote definitions are a combined configuration, tv/vcr, so
that's 2 in 1, the math does add up).
Has anyone seen this happen before? Thanks.

Sure, send me your config file (off of the list) and I'll take a look.
It may be that the signal or repeat codes for one remote is too
similar to another one, and WinLIRC may not be able to always
correctly distinguish which one is coming in when decoding signals.
