Thought I'd share this with the list....
I have a d10-200 directv box that I use for analog capture. 3 years ago I
used to use a small c program to change the channel on my d10-200 STB.
Directv then pushed a new firmware out that made changing channels under 100
break with that script, and I had to move over to the well known
directv.plscript. This script worked well, but took a while to change
making live TV unbearable, but recordings were fine.
Anyway - I tried the c program again, and it works. changing channels is
pretty much instantaneous, and the directv OSD never shows up, which is an
added bonus. live-tv is watchable again.
Anyway, here's the original post with instructions & source code:
Keep in mind that at some point, directv could push firmware that breaks it
again. For me though it's worth the risk.
