Great idea - you could call the extension "MythDirection."

Basic cable obviously has no problems, and if you have an antenna
plugged in you should be used to signal noise.

It knows which channel it's going to record, point the antenna there.
If there's a conflict, have a default direction. Say, what direction
the antenna was pointing to begin with. You can't get worst results
than you did before.

That's exactly the purpose of this post - to determine feasibility. I
hope someone picks up this idea. I've noticed there hasn't been many
new extensions lately.
