Sounds like you need to go into your programmed sequence and increase the delay between "button commands."

is that the inter-key delay

Yes, that would be it.

that one started out at 100ms . i then tried 500ms, 1000ms and 1500ms with no luck. not sure how high i should go with this or if the 1500 is more than enough.

Try a very large number and work down to the point where is works consistently.

A large inter-key delay likely will make the remote seem "sluggish"... you generally want to keep it as low as possible (0ms if it will work that way, and it often does). A better option might be to add one or more dummy commands into the sequence between the desired commands. Could be any command that would not be valid at the moment from any device in the activity (you might even want to add a device to the activity that is not actually used in that activity.

i tried short and long delays and nothing worked. i did not realize you could hit multiple buttons for the learn command as raw. i pushed guide and then fav on the original charter remote and that worked.

I put my DIY fix in this sticky also, as others may benefit to see it in a central location.

Issue: I have to press the "vol +" button really hard for it to raise the volume.

I decided to raise the circuit board so the button would have less travel to do, same effect.

So, I simply made a small washer from cardboard, a 12 can bottle cardboard.

I cut a small 1/4" by 1/4" square piece, used a dart to poke a hole in the center, then while the square piece was on the dart tip I simply trimmed it to a small round washer.
Non metallic, no danger of shorting anything.

For re-assembly, when I put the screw thru the main logic board, then I just pushed the small DIY cardboard washer onto it, the friction of the screw threads held the washer, and it so slightly propped up the circuit board upon final assy.

Did re-assembly, put battery in, re-boot....... and ta-da saved $100 at least from buying a replacement!

You can see work in progress here:

So, I give credit to this thread for inspiring my simple DIY fix, hope it help others.
