Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to figure out why this doesn't work:
(1) irsend SEND_ONCE logitech KEY_VOLUMEUP
but this does:
(2) irsend SEND_START logitech KEY_VOLUMEUP;sleep 1;irsend SEND_STOP logitech KEY_VOLUMEUP

It's odd since 2nd command makes my TV change Volume by only 1 step, instead of expected few. This behavior fits more command #1, but for unknown reasons it doesn't work at all (though I can see on my camera, that IR is sent)

Anyone had and solved similar problem?
