Suggestion: Computer control 311

765 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  BudShark
I have a need @ work to control a Dishnetwork 311 remotely. Obviously the only way to do this (since there is no serial connections) is via an IR blaster connected to the PC. Anyone doing this? Any suggestions on a stable/quality setup? Windows XP based software only please...

Thanks in advance,

A computer isn't the only solution. You may be able to effectively use an IR extender.
A Slingbox Solo goes for about $135. A remote extender setup goes for about $100-110 less and you don't have to give up your first born to the network weenies for an IP address.
The Slingbox can't help you with the guide limitations at this point.

Do the viewing choices change that frequently or could you set up some weekly timers?

You're almost into WMC territory.
