Is there a way to execute  program or run an http command to change channels when using Hauppauge pvr 2.  Ir blaster sometimes misses, and Directv allows you to use network commands to change the channel.  I saw other people or using mediaportal via emby to do this, but that seem like the hard way of doing it.

 

Is this possible to be done via plugin?

We don't currently have any native support for this.

This is a wild guess here but MAYBE the vera plugin has the ability to do something like that?  What exactly are you trying to do?  Do you want to use a IR remote to send web commands to your direct tv box, and use emby in betweeen the two to facilitate that communication?

nothing that complex.  I just want to be able to change channels without using IR blaster that is on the pvr 2.  I just to a way to have emby send a command on channel change, example  Tell emby to change channel to 26, emby then would send a command(url or run a exe) to change the channel.

Thanks for the info, I debating or not to try to write a plugin, to allow url command.   The question is does emby allow plugins to be called on channel change events?
