Alrightie then, got it working.  I just set the input to not use the  
directv.pl script to change channels, and set it to 3 there...now  
picture is clear as day, then set it back.  It appears that the  
preset channel setting for STB's doesn't work...meaning it didn't set  
the tuner to channel 3 like it should have.
