Default Car Dock Remote Control Problem

I just put in the Stiletto car dock, and I have experienced some very peculiar behavior when using the remote control. If I press the down arrow key the list of nearby stations appears as expected, but if I press the down arrow or up arrow more than once (and sometimes only once) the Stiletto starts racing through the list until it reaches the top or bottom of the list (depending on the arrow pressed) where it continues to "bounce" against the boundary, all the while making an annoying sound.

Likewise, when using the preset functions the remote often saves the current channel as a preset rather than changing to to the requested preset channel.

Has anybody else experienced these problems? Any advice would be appreciated.

I've experienced that issue twice already. I thought it was me pressing the key too long but maybe not.

It seems to me that the stiletto has to "Wake Up" and misses the first keypress of the remote. The time to wake up seems to be a lag for the keys to respond. It also seems to have a buffer and when you continue to hold or press the keys it stores them up so once it wakes up it goes to the list of channels in the genre it continues to scroll down or up depending on how long and how many stored keystrokes are in the buffer.

I'm sure this is a programming issue that could be resolved with the checking of the keyboard press more often. This effect has given the stiletto a bad rap as not being responsive.

Thanks for the feedback. It seems like there is a strong possibility that I have a bad remote.
