Sorry ... almost forgot to follow up on this.

Here's the original link from the tivo community


The bit of code i used comes from the end of the first

I have tried asking for more info on that thread, as
well as posting in a variety of newsgroups and forums,
but I haven't gotten any feedback.  And since I am
still trying to get mythtv working well, I haven't
been working much on this serial control problem.

hope it helps though.
