[mythtv-users] channel change script works only from command line

I actually reinstall MythTV (for other reasons), but still having this

What I have tried so far:

1) Changed the owner/group both to mythtv
2) Changed the permissions to 777 (was 755)
3) Moved the change_channel.sh script to mythtv's home directory

No change.  Works from the command line (even when run as user mythtv).
When run from MythTV, I see the IR blaster flashing, but the "channel" is
changed from within MythTV, not the cable box.

I took a couple of pictures; maybe they will help.  Unsure of the policy of
posting links, so add http:// to the links...
