Hi all.

I am switching over from my trusty two MX-980s to MX-990s.  So far so good and I really like the updated look and feel.

One notable difference that bothers me is what seems to be a lack of repeat when holding a button that is programmed with a alias instead of a single, say, IR code or even an if.

So, for example, say I have a volume up button that has:

And that VOl_Up button looks like:

this show the problem on the 990.  Pressing and holding the volume up button does not repeat.  But on the 980, it worked all day long.

Now, if I move that  if directly to the volume up button, repeat works just fine.  I just can do this and live with all of the copy-pasting but I am just wondering if anyone knows any more about this.

Note that for volume control, I do realize I can use punch-through, I just use the volume button as an easy example.
