One of my D12-300 just started doing the same thing.  I had updated to 
latest trunk SVN as of last week.  What I found was the directv3.pl 
script I was using would work fine from the command line, but the 
receiver would just get the last digit when executing channel changes 
from inside Myth (e.g. in LiveTV).  I added verbose to my channel change 
command line so I could see what it was doing and it started working 
reliably so I haven't looked into it further.  This is on my 
frontend/slave backend.  The same script with the same receivers work 
fine on my master backend without the verbose option.
