Press and hold (repeat) not working in CE latest stable (19.1-matrix)

I’m using a MECOOL M8S Pro Plus and did a clean install with the latest CE (May 12th release).
Been using the same remote.conf file I was using with CE v9.2.7, places in the root of the SD card.

All the buttons seems to work except holding the OK button. Normally press and holding the OK button will pause the media. This does not work anymore. Any clue how to fix this?

Can you change to:

factory_code = 0xdf000001
work_mode = 0
repeat_enable = 1
repeat_delay = 130
repeat_peroid = 120
release_delay = 20
debug_enable = 1

and see if that works?

Alternately you could try this config from the repository.

I’ll have a try tonight and report back! Many thanks in advance.

Once you get to it, please let me know if it resolved the issue. Thx.

I tried to change the settings like you sain. That didn’t work.
After that I tried your config, unfortunately that didn’t work either…

Maybe check keymap.xml or keyboard.xml?

I’ll need to look in to this. Never worked with it before.
