Windows 7: send command every 8 hours

23 Jan 2011   #1

windows 7 ultimate 64 bit
send command every 8 hours

I am using Win 7 MC with Uverse and the STB has an energy saving feature which turns it off every 8 hours if there is no activity. If I set a recording that is outside that 8 hour window the STB goes off and never gets the change channel command sent by W7MC. I was using BeyondTV and that software allowed me to send an "Enter" command before the channel changing string of numbers. The "Enter" command woke the STB up and it then changed to the new channel for the recording. Does anyone know of a way to do thad in W7MC? If not, can anyone think of another solution for this problem? What about scheduler - any help there?
