I was having a similar problem with my comcast box, basically the
program was having problems because my box wasn't on node 1.  There's a
-n option to 6200ch (I think it's in the mainline code now), that allows
you to force specify a channel.  In my case, it's 2.  So I created a
shell script:

/usr/local/bin/6200ch -n 2 $1

And I point to the shell script for the channel change command.

This might solve your problem.
