I posed this question in the thread about the Radio Shack Accurian HD Receiver, but I'll pose it here also since my questions has to do with my DVD recorder. I want to record off my Accurian, but am finding that it is impossible to set a timer that turns the Accurian on and to the channel I want to record from. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, but the problem comes up when I want to record two programs off different channels. My DVD recorder has no IR blaster. It was suggested that I get a universal remote that has EVENT TIMER capability. The only ones I've found will only turn the receiver on and off...not switch the channel. Anyone else out there having this issue? Suggestion are welcome.
