    Certain directv receivers can be controlled through the network. I created a small control program for this capability. This should work with H21 and newer receivers. It could be used for Media Center and alternative setups. If anyone wants to try it, here it is, good luck:
    I now have this hosted at another site with instructions:

    FYI: These commands are subject to change in the future according to DirecTV

    Thanks for the contribution, and welcome.

    Do a search, there are several threads about IP control, and another IP control program available on this forum (been using it for a month or two now).

    I had searched and unfortunately wasn't able to locate a control program that suited my needs. IE: stand alone, windows console based, self contained .exe, that has the functionality I needed. So I created this tool. If one already exists I wasn't aware. Hope I didn't re-invent the wheel...

    The one I've seen is web-based. I think an executable suits my needs a bit better. Thanks!
