 Replying to [comment:9 mdean]:
 > I have no way of testing this program, so perhaps another dev who uses
 Scientific Atlanta cable boxes can take the ticket.
 > That said, I'd rather see this code integrated with the existing channel
 changer app for Scientific Atlanta boxes or the existing channel changer
 app's functionality fully handled by this application before it's
 considered for inclusion.  We don't need yet-another channel-changer app
 in contrib, so if we add one, it would be nice to delete one or just
 modify the existing one.  I can't tell at this point whether you're saying
 that it does have all the functionality and should support all the boxes
 that sa3250ch supports.  Thanks.

 mdean - this doesn't work as-is with my sa3250hd and I haven't heard from
 the author after I was finally able to compile and test and report back my
 findings.  As much as I'd like some of the features promised by this
 (power query, wait time), it would not be able to replace the existing
 sa3250 script unless the problems were resolved for the 3250.  Currently,
 the existing script works great.
