NAME

       irsend - basic LIRC program to send infra-red commands

SYNOPSIS

       irsend [options] DIRECTIVE REMOTE CODE [CODE...]

DESCRIPTION

       Asks  the  lircd  daemon  to  send  one or more CIR (Consumer Infra-Red) commands. This is
       intended for remote control of electronic devices such as TV boxes, HiFi sets, etc.

       DIRECTIVE can be:
          SEND_ONCE         - send CODE [CODE ...] once
          SEND_START        - start repeating CODE
          SEND_STOP         - stop repeating CODE
          LIST              - list configured remote items
          SET_TRANSMITTERS  - set transmitters NUM [NUM ...]
          SIMULATE          - simulate IR event

       REMOTE is the name of a remote, as described in the lircd configuration file.

       CODE is the name of  a  remote  control  key  of  REMOTE,  as  it  appears  in  the  lircd
       configuration file.

       NUM is the transmitter number of the hardware device.

       For the LIST DIRECTIVE, REMOTE and/or CODE can be empty:

          LIST   ""    ""   - list all configured remote names
          LIST REMOTE  ""   - list all codes of REMOTE
          LIST REMOTE CODE  - list only CODE of REMOTE

       The SIMULATE command only works if it has been explicitly enabled in lircd.

       -h --help
              display usage summary

       -v --version
              display version

       -d --device
              use given lircd socket [/var/run/lirc/lircd]

       -a --address=host[:port]
              connect to lircd at this address

       -# --count=n
              send command n times

EXAMPLES

          irsend LIST DenonTuner ""
          irsend SEND_ONCE  DenonTuner PROG-SCAN
          irsend SEND_ONCE  OnkyoAmpli VOL-UP VOL-UP VOL-UP VOL-UP
          irsend SEND_START OnkyoAmpli VOL-DOWN ; sleep 3
          irsend SEND_STOP  OnkyoAmpli VOL-DOWN
          irsend SET_TRANSMITTERS 1
          irsend SET_TRANSMITTERS 1 3 4
          irsend SIMULATE "0000000000000476 00 OK TECHNISAT_ST3004S"

FILES

       /etc/lirc/lircd.conf
              Default  lircd configuration file.  It should contain all the remotes, their infra-
              red codes and the corresponding timing and waveform details.

DIAGNOSTICS

       If lircd is not running (or /var/run/lirc/lircd lacks  write  permissions)  irsend  aborts
       with the following diagnostics:
       "irsend: could not connect to socket"
       "irsend: Connection refused" (or "Permission denied").
