Yes, same for me.
But I am observing that remote control key presses are never lost.
Sometimes I press several keys in sequence and nothing happens. After some
seconds, the keys are "executed" very quickly.

This behaviour is very annoying sometimes.

I am also using lirc for controlling other applications (e.g. yammi) and the
reaction is always fast.

I also thought about some test code. But I have never looked into the VDR code

I think, there must be some instance inside VDR which "caches" the remote
key strokes in some kind of queue.
