    i searched the forum and found topics related to the button press that actually thinks it's being pressed twice for whatever reason. mine is different. if i'm watching a recorded show and decide to ffx2...if i hit the >> twice too fast, i hear the button presses but it actually only records a single now instead of ffx2 i'm in ffx1. hope that made sense.

    it's frustrating to say the least...

    I also have seen my T60 sometimes not respond if I press a button too quickly in succession. Therefore, don't do that. :) There are also times when you think it hasn't responded to a click so you hit it again only to have it respond too many times. Remember, patience is a virtue. :D

    A lot of people started experiencing the double-button press when 7.1 was released. Here is a lengthy thread on it:

    IIRC, it was narrowed down to a hardware problem with the peanut remotes manufactured between certain times. I did not have the issue, so I did not pay that close attention, sorry.

    So TiVo claimed, despite its affecting remotes made at widely disparate times (Series 1 and Series 2) by different manufacturers (TiVo and Sony.) TiVo even sent me a new remote to back up their claim. It worked fine for a while, but now my TiVos are once again experiencing the problem with the new remote and 7.2, and it's persisted into 7.2.2.
