So when I run either of the following from the cli (SSH session) my pi will turn on my Samsung TV:
echo "as" | cec-client -s echo "on 0" | cec-client -s
However when I but either of these into cron via crontab -e nothing happens. An example of what I have in the cron file is:
0 8 * * * echo "on 0" | cec-client -s
If i try add >> /home/pi/log to that line I get an empty file called log in my home directory.
How can I debug this? Or, can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
