Is the firmware open source or just SlimServer.

I downloaded source from svn for SlimServer and only see .bins for Firmware.

If firmware is not open source are bugs still filed on the opensource BugZilla database?

Just SlimServer.

Yes, they are.

please feel free to line up the sample set and prove "standard".
I have 3 dvd players, and oddly all three work by working up through
2x, 8x, 32x and go back to play on PLAY. It doesn't work for you,
that's fair, but this point has been brought up every time and it
doesn't carry.

Just SlimServer. I think part of the problem is that the development environment for the Ubicom processor is $20k or something like that. There was a project page on seanadams.com that spoke about this at one time.

not at this time. there are only the following modifiers for buttons:

'.single', '.double', '.repeat', '.hold', '.hold_release'

in theory, a ramping function could be tied to a counter on the
..repeat, but that requires some hard work on the IR code. It might be
possible to adjust the map to do 'fwd_scan' on 'fwd_scan.hold', then
'play' on 'fwd_scan.hold_release', but I've never tried it.
