Interesting enough this script works but the satcontrol-0.02 only works
for channels greater than 102 (I contacted the author).

Works fine
./directv.pl  box_type D10-200 port /dev/ttyS0 6

Changes the channel to 6 on the guide but then kills the process leaving you
on the same channel
./directv.pl  channel_change_type key box_type D10-200  port /dev/ttyS0
setup_channel 6

Produces an error for channels < 102
./directv.pl  port /dev/ttyS0 6
Error excessive retries
./directv.pl  port /dev/ttyS0 102
