You want to give some detail on this ,or provide me a link to it . I am looking on a page that said the model I ordered works . You need one that runs under Linux to get it to work . I have to wait until it arrives at my house on Monday or Tuesday next week to try it . Im hoping she will change the channels from the replay remote and it auto tunes to the channel for recording . If all go's well I should see the channels . One thing is that the usb to serial cable I ordered is usb 1.1 and the box is 2.0 usb . It should be backwards compatible for usb 1.1 .
What are you talking about the command code of 0xA6 . You need to program it into the directv box . Im under the impression that when the box reboots from pressing the red button she should see the cable and work fine ..
also the replay box has a usb port , but I was told by replay tv its an unused usb port . they where planning a software upgrade for that port but it never happened .Do you think it maybe its active but there not telling us the truth . I was wondering . I have no male /male usb to try it . I don't think there easy to fine too . all you ever see the the regular usb cable in the store .it like they want to program us like the tv box . Not being able to buy what we really want and them selling us what they want . This has been going on for a long time too .
