No variable necessary. Take a look at the first line in the script (the perl
magic) and make sure that that path is in your PATH env.

Ie: make sure the output from "which perl" matches the first line.

Subject: [mythtv-users] channelchange setup question (serial)

Using Direct TV RCA in 3 different models, I can run the channelchange
script manually and it does work fine every time, but it does not change
the channel automatically via the scheduler.

Running mythtvsetup in the "connect source to input" screen I entered the
full path for the channelchange script"/usr/local/bin/channelchange.pl",
Should I expect the scheduler to pass the channel number to the script or
I have to add some variable "%Channel" to the entry? If so what is this

If not, where else can I look to see why this is not changing the channel
as it does manually.
