Comment (by chris at spicecoffee.org):

 In the meantime, here's a patch against r10007 for sa3250ch.c and the
 README.  This includes the extra option to use the single-command mode for
 the SA4200 and at least my SA3250 box.  There are also numerous other
 little enhancements in there that I had added, including:


   * "-s" (single command) mode for SA4200/some SA3250 models
   * 1394 port/node autodetection (on by default, but that can be changed
 if problematic)
   * "-p" argument to manually specify port on 1394 bus
   * "-n" argument to manually specify node on 1394 port
   * "-f" (force) mode to force sending of command(s) even if compatible
 device not detected
   * "-a" (autodetection/report) mode which just attempts to detect a
 device automatically or using a user specified port and/or node, then
   * Various other cleanups

 Now that I think about it, it probably wouldn't be a terrible idea to add
 a hook in there so that if the command is invoked as "sa4200ch" it
 magically switches to "-s" mode so you could just symlink it to the
 alternate name to avoid having to add extra arguments on the command line.

 Anyway, this should hopefully be helpful until I get the Internal
 FirewireChanger code integrated.  Can't imagine that will be that tough,
 but I have to briefly acquaint myself with the MythTV codebase enough to
 do some damage and I need to get the svn version building and running.
