AND,AFAIK,no converter now on the market can be programmed to turn on
and tune to a programmed channel;they have to be set up and left ON
until the program is over.

A lot of VCR/DVD recorders have a "blaster" that will send IR codes to
a set top box or converter.

A digital Personal Video Recorder (PVR) can be programmed just like a VCR to
turn on, change channels and record the desired program. They have two
tuners so you can watch a different channel if you like or you can record
two programs at the same time.
