I'm working on a home-brew ir receiver and transmitter. I was thinking
a script to learn the ir commands from my Sky Digibox (uk) remote for 0-9,
sequence to put the box in a position to receive a channel change number
button on my remote).
The script to actually change channels could be very generic. You would run
script to learn and store the ir codes for your set-top box and the
channel change script
would look up and send the required ir commands:
look up code for channel change prepare state (code for "SKY" button, in
look up codes for buttons '1','0' and '5' (codes previously
stored for 0-9 buttons)
This could work for a lot of people, depending on whether it's possible to
any remote from a simple serial port receiver.
I'm a bit stumped with setting up my satellite channels with mythtv. I just
get it to the state where I can add 2 satellite channels to mythtv and get
mythtv calling the channelchange program. I'm working with 0.7 at the
moment, is the
functionality there yet, or do I need to go for a cvs version?
