I simply want to use WinTV to change the channel on the extender. Being able to do that has nothing directly to do with any of the Media Center installations. But what it allows is a third way to watch and set up recordings, using the HD-PVR, indirectly, or remotely, using the WinTV software.
It was easy to do when I had Directv on both Windows 7 and Windows 10. Media Center was not installed on those boxes, but by feeding the Directv dvr output into the HD-PVR, I could use the WinTV software to set up recording through the HD-PVR. The WinTV software used the HD-PVR blaster to change channels on the Directv DVR. The Blast.cfg program with WinTV had the codes for Directv, so channel changing worked swimmingly using the HD-PVR blaster. WinTV allows the use of Titan TV scheduling to tune the DVR at a specified time and record it using the stream from the directv dvr.
There is no reason that would not work with the DMA2100, but there is no code for its remote (or any MCE remote) in the WinTV Blast.cfg program. The DMA2100 streams perfectly into the Hauppage Capture program. You supposedly can program the HD-PVR blaster, but I have never gotten that to work, and have found evidence that no one else has either. I could be wrong. Perhaps a reader of this forum has successfully done it.
I am confident another follower of the form has found a way to get it working, and that is what I am asking about. I probably was not clear enough in my original post.
