    I'm trying to find a work-around to the annoying pin code that some STB's are now asking for when you view something like a 15cert movie during the day. The big issue is that this messes up recordings and you don't know until it's too late.

    So I had a good idea. Set the pin code to something that cannot be a channel (e.g. 0000).
    Create a macro that pauses for a couple of seconds then sends 0000.
    Use the "Send Select Command" in the STB Set-up in TV3 Blaster Plugin to execute the Macro.

    So, for example, to view channel 123, it will send 123, then pause, then send 0000.

    Obviously I can't control when it does this but it doesn't matter. If the STB is not asking for the pin code and 0000 is sent, it simply says its an invalid channel and continues to work fine.

    So, seems like a workable solution.

    The issue is that I can't seem to get it to do the "select" command at the end of the channels.

    Under Commands, I have "Select Macro: pin"
    Under Options, I have "Send Select Command" is ticked.

    But nothing happens (other than the channel selection which works fine).
    I've run the macro in test mode and it seems to be doing what it should.

    Any thoughts????
