Utility idea... button generator
I thought this might be handy for those with Cable or Sat TV...
since most providers give a list (CSV or XLS) style that can be DL'd it would be great to have a button generator so to use them for aliasing your real buttons to them for your favorite channels. This generator will be helpful also for when they change the lineups.
Example lineup from provider...
501 HBO West
IR buttons in CCF panel that you learn your IR into
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
so the util would use the CSV and you'd tell it to create the buttons for each channel in the csv and alias those to the CCF's panel with the IR buttons on it.
thus building a set of panels with only channel buttons like this...
[Button] Channels : 5
[Button] Channels : 0
[Button] Channels : 1
Anyone up to the challenge?
