I posted a script at the other forum called send_url.vbs that made it easy to send commands to Tivoweb from a batch file by opening IE in the background. Call it with something like: send_url.vbs "<<tivoipaddress>>/sendkey/tivo" Link is here (remove the X): http://www.dealXdatabase.com/forum/showpost.php?p=297881&postcount=617 Kinda slow, however. I had another script lying around that let you do the same with a telnet session. Much faster IIRC, but it required you install w3sockets from dimac. Let me know if it would help you at all and I'll dig it out.
