I assume you're using the remote control unit bundled with the Hauppauge
Nova-T PCI 90002. I tried the vdr-remote plugin quite some time ago,
before switching from dxr3 output to softdevice output on DirectFB.
Maybe key-release events are somehow misinterpreted as key-press events?
The softdevice remote control driver doesn't report key-release events
to VDR. When I tried to add them, I faced some problems (can't remember
which exactly, though). The Linux cx88 remote control driver will report
key-release events (see evtest output).
See also the patch I posted a few days ago, for making cInterface::Wait()
ignore k_Repeat events.

If you are interested in trying softdevice-dfb on the Nova-T, see my patches
at http://www.funet.fi/~msmakela/software/vdr/. Current
DirectFB doesn't distinguish key-press and key-repeat events.
