@nateb I’m unable to send you a reply. Please send your email and I’ll get back to you and discuss another way to go about this.

Nick is there any way you can get in touch with Nate about my last pm I sent him with a suggestion?

From my pm with Nate that I am waiting on a reply for:
if you could just make some type of parameters when starting your app that would allow me to send it channel numbers and without the tv list to the right side and bottom. In other words just have the stream within your current app but without the listings to the right side and lower bottom. Just the stream and that’s all. Plus the ability to send numbers in order to change channels.

Also including a parameter that puts the stream in full screen at launch would also help.

A bonus would be creating a shortcut to allow me to have no stream playing (aka I’m running Netflix or whatnot and don’t want to have to load up your program again) just something that releases it from using cpu/ram until I need it again to watch tv. And naturally some other shortcut to start the stream again.

The above would do just fine for my needs. I just didn’t want all that stuff on the screen when only thing I wanted was the stream itself and nothing more.

If you can do the above then that will be fine by m

If you need a custom solution, then I recommend contacting SD for a contract to build your app for you. But embedding their video display in your app most likely runs afoul of their CableLabs certification which allows them to present DRM content in the first place.

Other companies have the ability to play DRM content on Windows as well, such as CyberLink. Have you sought them out as well, as it seems unlikely you'll be able to get what you want from SD.

It’s not going to be embedded. Did you read my previous post??

So essentially you want a special version of their software that:
  • Disables the guide
  • Allows a command line switch to designate a starting channel
  • Allows for some type of IPC or other custom interface/socket to send commands to facilitate channel changes
No, I understood your post. SD currently offers the tools for you to roll your own version of this with less than hour of effort. The only downsise is that DRM content is only available through their client and not the libraries. Since you feel that your needs are so special and unique, I commented on other avenues of achieving your goals; SD's software does not provide the features you desire.

In need of speaking to Nick but we are unable to be at the phone at the same time. Would like to continue our chat via PM, Nick.

It's kind of a nasty solution but maybe you could intercept keystrokes while the channel is playing to disable the slice guide etc.

Will you letter it or divide it?

jachin99, guess I made an assumption based on your user name, disregard.

Wow. A few months go by after talking with Nate on the phone. Haven’t heard from him since even though he said he would like me know about a possible work around to what I am still looking to do.
