[mythtv-users] USB keyboard control of digital cable box

I've got a Scientific Atlanta 4200 digital cable box.  It's got a USB
port on the back and interestingly enough, I can plug any USB keyboard
into it and change channels by entering the numbers.  Is there any way
to make MythTV or Linux output the keyboard commands to control the
cable box?  I've heard of serial port control of satellite receivers, so
it's not too far off I suppose...
