Two times "Up" = "Play", two times "Down" = "Menu"?
I use Meedio Pro 1.41, Girder, a Streamzap Receiver and a Harmony Remote 885 (same problem occurs when using the Streamzap itself though).
The problem is the following: If the Up button of the remote is pressed two or more times in a row, it sometimes gets interpreted as a “Play” command. As mentioned, this doesn't happen all the time but seems to be subject to the timely succession the keys are pressed. It never happens when I wait, say > 1 sec. between button presses, but occurs often when I press it in quick succession.
Furthermore, in case I press "down" in a certain timely succession, the action of the button "Menu" gets executed.
According to the log, the following happens: two times "up" (in THAT certain succession) became:
1) up, up
2) up, play, up
3) up, play, up, left
I'm convinced my gml file causes the problem.
There are three groups in that file: Meedio, TVedia and "Foreground check". The latter disables the other two groups on all events, then checks which program is focused and enables the corresponding group.
Do you got any ideas?

did you try this GML:
It uses the WM messages fulltime plugin from Meedio.
hope this helps

And thanks a lot for your reply. Indeed, the usage of the WM command plugin could be a possible solution.
I'm far far away from home right now but I am going to be back tomorrow and will try it out then.
Right now, the group "Meedio" in my gml includes the commands for my external video players (VLC + MPC) - e.g. the play command is the same for MPC, VLC as well as for Meedio.

Thanks for the tip!
Finally I got some time to try the gml in conjunction with the WM Command plugin...and: it works . After looking at the log subsequent to pressing hundreds of times "up" and "down", neither "menu" nor "play" commands showed up. Thanks a lot for the tip.
I've attached the corresponding gml file which now has a group "players". I'm going to modify the file so it doesn't have any unnecessary commands anymore, e.g. old Meedio commands which don't affect the external players.
I'm wondering about one other thing though: Is there a way to "slim" the "foreground check" commands? As mentioned, there are three groups (Meedio, TVEdia, Players) with real commands and a fourth group "Foreground check" that disables all groups on all events, then checks which one is in the foreground (Meedio, TVEdia, MPC or VLC (external players)) and activates the corresponding of the three other groups. This seems to be an extensive sequence to me - don't flame - I just don't know if there is a more elegant way of doing that.

Ah well...I was apparently satisfied too early. Although it doesn't happen as often as before, it still occurs.
Any other ideas?

Last one...I promise. I just can't find the problem.
