[NTG-context] How to repeat the hyphen?

Sounds like you've got it working, but just to provide an alternative 
that should* work, according to the sources:

  \setuplanguage[cz]
     [compoundhyphen=-,%        Or, to keep the \setuphyphenmark
      rightcompoundhyphen=-,%   configuration mentioned in Taco's link:
      leftcompoundhyphen=-]%    `*compoundhyphen=\compoundhyphen`

That does require you to replace all the hyphens with `||`, which it 
understandably sounds like you want to avoid, but it can be good for 
someone like me who likes that explicit markup, or for someone who needs 
more control over which symbols go where (I'm using for Esperanto -- 
slightly non-standard -- a vertical tick mark for the inner-line and the 
left but the hyphen for the right).  The main benefit, though, is that 
you can do the same thing for line-breaking hyphenation if you need to 
change that, just drop the `compound` in the keys.

* I've been running into it working for the first break or two but than 
switching back to the default for the rest of the document, and haven't 
been able to track down why.  Though it might have something to do with 
me still using the ridiculously out-of-date 2016.05.17 because I haven't 
gotten around to overriding the Gentoo package manager yet...
