Done; see the video4linux list for details.

I also improved my patch to the Hauppauge Nova-T PCI 90002 driver
in Linux  Now it will discard the first repeated RC5 frame,
effectively doubling the repeat delay from 113.8 milliseconds to
227.6 milliseconds.  The 113.8-millisecond repeat delay of the previous
patch was too short for my wife, and occasionally also too short for me.
The repeat rate remains at 113.8 milliseconds, that is, the built-in
repeat rate (64*T, T=16/9 ms) of the remote control unit.

You can get the updated patch at the following location:
