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.
