Direct TV Scripts By Donald Marang
Donald Marang has created scripts he uses to automate recording shows on Direct TV. Here's what he says about them.
If you are creating an automated script for login be aware that this probably requires the script to keep the credentials, including the password stored unencrypted. This is normally unacceptable for a script used by several users and not even advised for a single user. The fact it is for Outlook accounts is concerning. Despite all that, I regularly have a script into the DirecTV website to program my DVR. I just store my credentials in an INI file. The program script loads the credentials from the file, grabs the name of the show I want to record and loads the webpage with a run command.
This script set demonstrates how to directly manipulate the document object model of the browser.
