I have service with Dish Network, Directv, Comcast, and will soon have my C/KU band system back up with a DSR-922 and maybe a Pansat 9200HD.

I'm looking for a good customizable program guide where I can set up channels from all those providers.So far I have had no luck finding one online, the closest thing was TitanTV but even they limit you to one Satellite provider, OTA, and Cable provider.

In the long run what I would like to do is create my own guide, (however not sure where I could access the raw guide data) that would interface with some type of IR blaster.I would like to program the remote codes for my HR-21, Vip722, DCH 3416, DSR-922, and maybe the Pansat 9200HD, along with my LCD hdtv.The guide would allow me to click on a show/channel in the guide and would have the IR blaster send the appropriate codes to the TV and then the corresponding receiver.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Joe
