    Hey guys. I'm new to MediaPortal having been a long time SageTV user. Since SageTV may or may not be dead I'm exploring other PVR software. MediaPortal seems to be the best choice because it supports all of my hardware and can be run in a Windows environment. Having said all that the only thing I see missing from a configuration standpoint is the ability to change channels on the (capable) DirecTV boxes via HTTP commands. It is MUCH better than ir blasting, serial, or firewire tuning and takes nothing to set up. I have attached the zip that includes the .dll that is currently in use for SageTV. Maybe someone can adapt it for use in MediaPortal.

    Nice to see you here. If you do a search on DirecTV SHEF you will find there's a really nice plugin for exactly that.

    Ah. Sorry for the pointless post. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
