       irsend - basic LIRC program to send infra-red commands


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


       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

       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

       -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


          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"


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


       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").


       The  documentation  for  lirc  is  maintained  as  html pages. They are
       located under html/ in the documentation directory.
