Anyone who wants to blast and change channels on the DCH3200 cable box through mythtv should copy and paste this config file in their /etc/lirc/lircd.conf file and not use the one from here:

D'oh. Oops. At a glance, it looked okay. Hard to say for sure just by
looking though. Could be for a different variant of the DCH3200 (that
is set up for a different remote) or something, dunno. Glad to hear
you got it working though.

Something to note for people trying such things in the future... I
don't know that its so much the set top box you want to try to find a
config file for as it is for the remote that came bundled with the set
top box. For example, the Motorola DTA things I've got came bundled
with a remote, model DRC-800, and lirc has a DRC800 config file that
Just Worked (after adding that min_repeat bit).
