External STB + Capture card & IR Blasting: Power on before & Power Off after recording (1 Viewer)

Currently I am using external STB and Hauppauge Colossus capture card with MP1.

In MP1 there seems to be no way to turn STB on when I start to watch tv or a record starts. Also turning off the STB after stopping a channel and recording would be nice, because my STB is IPTV box and if it is left on it's hogging bandwidth.

Also another problem is that the box has a built-in sleep timer, if recording is scheduled at a late time, the box powers off and recording fails. And this box is the only option for my IPTV provider :(
