    Hi, I'd like to know if there is a SHEF command for press and hold buttons on direcTV. If not, I need a command that can be sent by IP that simulates a press and hold exit command to switch between "your cables are not HD" and and SD output. Or even a command that simulates press and hold INFO to get to advanced settings.

    Any commands I could bookmark via iPhone Safari browser would be great.

    I'm not sure if there's an easier way, but if you use the serial interface, you can specifically tell it key down and up.

    SHEF supports anything that can be done via serial - /serial/processCommand
