show-stopping pedal problem

As it had happened already once, a year ago, also on this specific stage, but with different tablet and different bluetooth pedal:

I had thought,
-maybe I did too much turning with fingers, and also foot, and too often backwards to the beginning with three fingers, through all pieces. This happens only before this sort of concerts on this stage. Because I extensively practised page turn passages in the end.
-also the turning seemed to be much slower and in different tempo each time, other than normally. Anyway I closed everything, and rebooted. I had a little problem with pairing then, bluetooth only worked when I held the tablet nearer to the pedal. Nothing had changed afterwards. Not quicker, pages jumped now and then.
-maybe only this stage, a problem of  bluetooth, disturbed by some power circuit line under this special stage.
maybe this  one grand piano is the problem. It has a built-in air-condition. (I put it off both times after problems, first time , in the concert last year, everything went well ... by chance?)

I tried to reproduce the problem today, turning back and forward a lot. But everything is perfect, page turning is super quick and confident.

I too have had this issue when using the AirTurn PED. I suspect that it is a problem with the pedal itself because I have never experienced this with the PageFlip Cicada. I don't know how the PED mechanically works, but I wonder if the sensor or filament can occasionally stick, hence the repeated page turns. If you have the "bounce" or whatever it is called set at 0,0, then the unwanted turning happens very rapidly. Primarily for this very reason, I have it set at 1,5 seconds. Then, when the unwanted page turn happens, I quickly stomp the PED (unsticking? whatever has jammed) and turn pack with my finger. AirTurn kindly sent me a replacement, but I sometimes had the same problem with it, so I'm guessing it is a slight design flaw. The only bluetooth pedal that I have found to be 99.999% reliable is the PageFlip Cicada. It works flawlessly until it physically breaks from hour of use each day. I love the design of the Firefly and the PED, but I need to know that it will be there for me when it counts!

One other problem that I have had with the PED is it will freeze up my bluetooth if I leave it connected for too long (particularly if my tablet goes to sleep). Then, in some cases, I have to reboot the tablet.
