How do i get my LMCE tv guide to change channels on my STB box?
« on: October 26, 2008, 10:03:31 am »
I want to be able to just use one box to control everything. So when I am in LMCE watching TV and viewing guide data I want to be able to select  a program and have that guide send a signal to my STB as to what channel to change to. Please advise on what all is need to accomplish. Thanks!
