Autotune has recently gone from "would be nice" to necessary for me so I wrote a Windows Desktop Gadget to do it and thought I would share it here. It's pretty basic at the moment with no options or error checking but it does the job.

When you install it, it will open ready to configure.

Once configured, you can leave it as is or shrink it down.

I think the fields are self explanitory but feel free to ask any questions.

To install, download the attached ZIP and open it. Then double-click the file you find inside: DirecTV Auto Tune.gadget

This will install it on your Windows 7/8 desktop. If you're not familiar with Windows Gadgets, you can access them by right-clicking your desktop and selecting "Gadgets".

Please let me know about any bugs you find or any features you might want.

ETA:
If you'd like to have multiple auto-tunes you can run the gadget multiple times.

Edited:
Removed DirecTV logos from gadget.

Neat gadget! If I could suggest an addition, add a keypad icon for manual channel change anytime.

(and I should take a look at programming a gadget)

I think I'm going to do that as a seperate gadget.

It was suggested that I remove the DirecTV logos from the gadget so I have now done so. The OP has been updated with the new version and thumbnails. There is _no_ additional functionality at this time.

Which tuner gets the command when used with an HR DVR?
Probably the foreground tuner, right?
DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.

Yes. It's as if you sent the command from a hand-held remote.

Nice job! Might use it on occasion, if I have my laptop on and want to make sure I don't miss the start of a live event.
