very cool Jerrod, I've got the Hauppauge but Dishnetwork instead of 
DirecTV - d'oh!

Brad what I do with good ol' dishnetwork is separately program the dish 
receiver to switch
to the right channel at the right time, run a direct cable from 
receiver (it has 2 sets of outputs)
to computer, and then separately set timer on computer app.  Recently I 
got VNC going and
router table settings so that I can "channel" the PC from home to 
record something, but I can't
seem to get the telepathy thing going to control the Dish channels on 
the receiver...
