Actually I meant to look at the LED display on the DCT2000 and see what 

However, you could definitely try running the channel script while watching 
livetv from within mythtv.  

If neither of those show a change, then it is possible that the serial port on 
the DCT2000 is disabled.  You can try asking your cable company to enable it, 
but they might say no.  Mine did, so I'm stuck with IR blasters.
