The first--and only--argument that's added to then end of the command
line specified as the "External channel change command" is the channel
number (technically, it's whatever is specified as the freqid for the
channel). This is shown in the help text displayed when the setting has
focus, if you have a sufficiently-high resolution screen or
sufficiently-small font size:
External channel change command
If specified, this command will be run to change the channel for inputs
which have an external tuner device such as a cable box. The first
argument will be the channel number.
You can add your own arguments before the channel number by simply
including them in the command line.
