    If you don't mind......could you try this file? There were a couple of Microsoft files that are required that you wouldn't have unless you have VB installed. Even if I try it on my other PC, it already has VB installed will work.

    I am new to using HTTP commands. I have a good deal experience using serial commands.
    I am trying to get these SHEF commands to work and not having any luck. I have a H24 receiver in my office with no satellite connection. I can ping the receiver. Should I be able to use SHEF commands while it is searching for satellite? Thanks.

    Suggestions I didn't see in the above posts.

    1. If you are a long term DIRECTV customer, call customer care and beg for a freebie. They are more likely to cough up one for no charge now that AT&T drives the Mother Ship.

    2. Don't use your pc, use your smartphone as a remote. I have two different Android phone apps that are quicker and more responsive than the native remotes.

    3. Buy a used Logitech Harmony Universal Remote and program it to execute D* macros and instructions.
