    TV remote control software?

    Hi to all... don't know if this is a good place to ask, but I'm taking a shot.

    I have a number of things that I want to do with my TV remote (connected to a Charter Motorola DVR cable box): mute, rewind (and rewind X-number of seconds), fast forward (and fast-forward X-number of seconds), jump to X-channel(s), display my FAV channels list, etc.

    Does anyone know if there is a programmable remote unit that would let me program what *I* want the remote to do?

    I know it sounds kind of crazy, but I'd really like to be able to ONLY have the tasks that *I* want pre-programmed and available to me at the touch of a button.

    I would pay quite a bit for a remote that would let ME decide what it does, and let ME decide when I want to change it.

    I used to write programs (in my former working life) and I knew how to set an F-Key to do something specific. I really wish I could program my own TV remote control.

    If there is another place where I could look for this capability, I'd surely love to hear about it.

    Tks & Regs, Connie

    Sounds like you could use a Logitech harmony remote. They are a tad on the expensive side but very versatile. I have an older model (520) and it still works great.
    You hook it up to your PC through USB and program it through the software included with the remote. It can also learn commands directly from most of your other remotes.

    I have mine controlling my PC, receiver and HDTV. It also controls my front room TV, BDplayer and cable box.
