When I've been testing LIRC, when I use irsend to send out a command,
there tends to be a delay of 1-2 seconds before that command is sent.
Is this normal? If I create an application in Perl that would stay in
memory and not have to be run fresh each time a command is sent, could
I open /dev/lircd once, then send each command as the user presses a
GUI button, and find a faster response?
With what I was thinking of doing, there might already be latency with a
wifi device so if I can reduce that extra time, it will make a
difference, especially when skipping commercials or turning the volume
up and down. Is there any way to eliminate that delay if the socket
doesn't have to be re-opened each time? (I'd test this in Perl with
the Lirc::Client module, but CPAN seems to be having some problems on
my workstation right now.)
Thanks for any help on this or any info on getting rid of that delay.
