Many of the Directv receivers have the low-speed serial port mentioned
(especially RCA). I have the RCA DRD435RH Directv receiver and made my
own serial cable using instructions from http://www.dtvcontrol.com/ with
the external channel changer script from
http://bach.as.arizona.edu/~johng/rca_control.txt . Solid channel
changes. Never had a problem.
