What are 'Repeats' when sending an infrared (IR) command?
Due to potential problems receiving the IR from the remote control, many devices require they see multiple "repeats" of data before they recognize a command as being valid. This threshold can vary between manufacturers, and even devices by the same manufacturer. The Repeats setting specifies how many times the remote should send a command, which is normally between zero and five.
Repeats are there to make sure a single command is accepted by the device.
If you want to send, for example, an extra input command at the start of an activity just to make sure the device goes to the right input, go into the setting for the activity and look for "yes this setup is correct, but I need to add more..." or something like that. Keep hitting next until you get to a section that allows you to add a command to the beginning (and/or end) of the activity.
In all of my activities that use my receiver for sound, I added an extra command to toggle the TV speakers off when entering the activity and another toggle to turn them back on when leaving the activity. The only problem I have found with this is that the "Help" button doesn't seem to ever re-issue commands set up like this. So if it gets missed by the device somehow, you'll have to manually send it if things get out of sync.
