You might be able to get it to work with another setting. When I set up my 
DCX3200-M in MythTV 0.21, there was no matching setting in the setup menu. I 
selected whatever seemed closest at the time and then told Myth to use an 
external channel-change script. This script in turn called a modified version 
of the 6200ch program, the source code for which ships with MythTV. I just 
needed to add some FireWire IDs to the source code so that the program would 
recognize my cable box. This worked fine, and in fact I've not tried doing 
anything else with 0.22.
