I was just reading on the discussion of mythtv:firewire on the wiki that:

I forgot to mention that 6200ch isn't an entirely out-of-the-box solution,
anyway; you still need to specify the node with -n in a multibox situation.
You don't actually have more than one FireWire cable box, do you? If you did
I bet you'd run into the (for example) "both boxes can't be on broadcast"

Does this mean that in the setup where I put the channel change command I
can use the -n switch to specify the node or I need to put it somewhere
else? This sounds like my exact problem of channel changes happening on the
wrong box. Thanks for any help
