I've spent almost an hour surfing to find out if a DVD recorder can automatically change a channel on my satellite receiver, but can't find an answer. Here's what I want to do....set up a DVD recorder to record a show at 2:00 a.m. on channel 301. When I went to bed I was watching channel 610 and then I turned off the satellite receiver. Questions: 1. At 2:00 a.m. will the DVD recorder turn on my sat. receiver and change the channel to 301? 2. If I left the sat receiver "on" but it was still tuned to 610, would the DVD recorder change the channel to 301? 3. I assume if I left the channel on 301 before retiring and also left the sat. receiver "on", it would work? Am I correct about 3? I really need to know about questions 1 and 2.
