That call looks correct, assuming you wanted to press the button "3".
You're right, that response is not correct, It's not even a valid
error. Something must either be wrong with the STB or the serial
connection to it.

According to the command guide
(http://www.sbcatest.com/installers_help_d10.pdf), The response to
those commands should start with one of the STB Responses in section
4.5, which are F0 through FF, (not including F8, FA, FC, and FE).

Can you verify the line speed, parity, stop bits and data bits that
you have it set up to use? Also, which sub-model of the D11 box are
you using?
