"Error excessive retries"?
Have you tried running the directv.pl script from the command line?
I edited mine to have the correct box type as default,
thus '/usr/local/bin/directv.pl 35' does change my channel to 35. You can use
mplayer to display to the screen, then change channels in another window. All
Only if this works would I try to teach Myth to use it. Too many variables.
Also try 9600baud.
