Search from Commercials Direct


Is it possible to create a function that would allow viewers to search for shows/content directly from a commercial?  Many shows (especially new shows) have commercials advertising day & time.  It would be very convenient to have a way to search for that show directly while that commercial is playing.  I imagine this would require some significant coding efforts, but new functionality keeps your apart and above competitors.  Maybe reprogram one of the lesser used buttons on current remotes or a quick combination of buttons that tells your DVR to search for show in the menu.  This would sure save a lot of time over having to enter the menu, go to search, then scanning in all the letters to find your show.  I'm guessing this feature would also be a HUGE selling point and incentive to producers to put content on DirecTV over competitors.
