Other Requirements

Usage

Command-Line Channel Changer

The following command will change to channel 35 on live TV. If Media Center is not already running, this will first attempt to start Media Center (which could take 5-10 seconds including time for plugin to load). If Media Center is already running, the channel should change fairly quickly. Using this command, you can create desktop shortcuts to your favorite channels.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaCenterCommander\CommandLineChannelChanger.exe" 35

I have digital cable with channel and program numbers e.g. 12.1 but this is rejected as "no channel". Is there some special syntax or do you not support digital via HDHOMERUN
