Well, I could only test this with my own RCU stuff, but I just
assumed that it should work just as well with LIRC.

It can't work with the keyboard, because there is no "repeat"
functionality in cKbdRemote. Maybe somebody could find a way
to implement that ;-)

So basically I'm afraid I can't help here. The functionality
works great with my RCU, so I would assume that there are some
glitches in cLircRemote or the remote plugin you're using.
My guess would be that there is no uninterrupted stream of
"repeat" keypresses. As soon as a non-repeat keypress is
received, a channel switch will take place.
