I thought I would ask here first before random experimenting…
What is the best way to add a method to quickly switch the channel on my TV to one of a few favorite channels?
I am using a DirecTV satellite hd dvr box controlled via IP and being able to quickly switch between 4 or 5 of my favorite channels would be very helpful.
Please note that I am not asking for something to use the DirecTV built-in “quick tune” or favorites command, just the best way to set up macros to automate the usual keypress of “1”, “2”, “3”, “Enter” for switching to channel 123, for example.
It would be really cool to have small icons or buttons that have the logo of the channel, like I have seen done on some Harmony or Crestron remotes, but text labels would be ok too.
