External .exe .bat command when changing channels (1 Viewer)

Hello -

Great product and fast continuous updates, please keep it up!

I would like to request the ability if it makes sense to be able to configure in the Channel Configuration form for an external .exe or .bat file to be executed on channel change with substitution in the command line for at least the channel number.

This would allow integration of a wide range of DirectTV or Dish satelite receivers via the low speed serial port with minimum code required in MP.

sample integration of an existing utility that would cover most DirectTV receivers would be: www.dtvcontrol.com via the dtvcl.exe command.

Most receivers that have the low speed serial connection could be supported in this manner and not place the burden of individual integration upon the MP development team.

Thanks.
