    Hey!

    Is it possible to blast 'power on' command when a recording starts or you tune on a channel and 'power off' when recording ends or you stop watching the channel?

    I'd love such feature, because my STB is iptv box and if it's left on its hogging a lot of bandwidth for nothing (esp. on HD channels).

    I have a couple DVB-T tuners and Hauppauge Colossus, so the Power on and Power off blasting should happen only when Colossus is starting/stopping its channel. So that DVB-T recording would not start/stop the IPTV STB ;)

    I don't think it is possible to automate that, sorry.

    (Three years along, and no responses to this...? :confused: )

    I've been asking myself this same question of late, and have been wondering about the possibility of running batch files instead of directly executing the blaster program.

    Although I was thinking more along the lines of blasting the Power-on command before trying to change channels - since my satellite STB doesn't allow for coming out of standby mode with anything other than Power-On or Power-Toggle... :D

    IRSS also provide a command-line tool to blast your predefined Blast-command: IR-Blast
    First configure/register your blast commands in Translator (like: "Power-On", "Power-off"...).

    The you could use batch file to call these commands using IR-Blast. See: IR Blast
