I use the 6200ch program to change my channels. I had issues changing channels from SD to HD (and vice versa). Mythfrontend would crash. So, I created a simple script to add a 1 second delay after changing the channel.
Either way, I add the -g option to the 6200ch command line, to specifiy the GUID of the Motorola box.
In mythtv directly, I had: 6200ch -g xxxxxx The channels gets added automatically by myth.
For the script, mythtv just has 6200ch-1.sh as it's command, and the script deals with the GUID, the script looks something like:
6200ch -g xxxxxx $1
Simple as that. Firewire channel switching has been flawless for me.
