Is it possible to utilize my HD-PVR for my cable box's VOD channel (999)? Complete with arrow controls and navigation, etc.
To make matters worse, it is in a different location than where my HTPC (moving to media center 7) is going to be. Was wondering about the DVBLink software, and running the HD-PVR through my WHS2011 box. But in all my searching I could not find anything that showed remote control keys other than the 0-9 numbers being used, and I would need to use the arrow keys for navigating the VOD menus.
My current sagetv setup has the HD-PVR used for my copy-once cable card channels, but it wont be needed for this use anymore, and I was trying to re-purpose it. I use a USBUIRT for blasting commands to the cable STB (more reliable than the built in emitter).
Thought briefly about firestb control, but I am all 64bit. I could try to run a 32bit XP virtual box on my WHS2011 server, but not sure it has the horsepower (HP Microserver N40L with 8GB ram).
Thoughts or ideas?
