Guys,

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this thread, but I've got a Time Warner DVR Motorola DCX3400M that I'm trying to control with iRule via my iPad. I'd like to send a command to the Motorola DVR to ask "What's the current Channel?" or something similar. I'll be using the DVR partly for a music input, so sometimes I'd like to know what channel I'm on. iRule supports feedback, but I'm not sure the locked down Time Warner box can send this command/output back so I can display it on a label on my remote. Thanks for helping and any input or other suggestions are helpful!!

Thanks!!

If you want channel feedback from a cable box, get a TiVo.

LOL... Thought you might say that.... I'm kinda stuck with Time Warner tho... :( I need their high speed internet and I'm getting a small price break having internet and TV. Any thoughts on that? Do these "locked" Time Warner boxes have no other way to communicate other than basic remote IR functions??
