I was planning to use 6200ch as my channel changing script, but got 
turned on to MythChanger (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/majoridiot).  I 
followed the README and compiled and it works very well.  It has a -P 
switch which will power on the box if its off.  It might be worth taking 
a look at.

Hope that helps.
