That code worked, I could see the LED on the IR transmitter stay on for
maybe just under half a second (rather than a short burst as it usually is)
but since I need at least 1 second of continuous IR it still only registers
as a tap rather than a 'hold-down' of the button. I upped it to 64, but
didn't really help. Any more and it fails to transmit, as you suggested.
When I try things like SEND_START and SEND_STOP then I get the error
mentioned earlier, and count=5 (or 50 or 500) seems to only repeat
individual button presses once or twice, and thats it. (not a continuous
Im looking through the lirc
http://winlirc.sourceforge.net/technicaldetails.html documentation , as my
understanding is still fairly limited, but I'm thinking perhaps if the 'gap'
length can be reduced to zero, then I can repeat the command as many times
as I'd like and it would look like a continuous stream but I'm not sure
thats possible. When I set 'gap 0' in the conf file I get the warning that I
should set a valid gap value, and it still won't do a button hold. Even with
'min_repeat 2' or 3 it the transmission fails..
