Ready to dump Repeater

Man, I tell ya. The Repeater is a nice unit. Except it's foot pedal controls (both with a three-button Digitech and a MIDI controller) leave a lot to be desired. The EDP leaves it in the dust in that department.
I haven't been able to change loops without using my hands since I got the thing. I'm on my second MIDI pedal. I thought my original somewhat archaic Digitech PDS-type was not the best device to use and since sold it. I purchased a Fender Cyber-Twin MIDI Foot Pedal with the intention of using it for the CT as well as the Repeater. It's a real simple pedal to use. Sends PC and can send CC.
Most of the MIDI functions I tried worked BUT when a new loop is selected (after being created), ex. LOOP UP, I can't get the darn thing to PLAY. I opened a case with Electrix and they're helpful but it seems weird that a simple function can't be made to work. I'm running 1.1, BTW.
This problem is really starting to get on my nerves. As a guitar player, stopping to manually initiate Loop Up or Loop Down ain't gonna cut it.
Electrix should have, in the first place, took a lesson from Gibson and used more than a 3 switch pedal. You got to be able to Loop Up or Down.
Oh well, must have been the bad Martinis I drank earlier.
