A big thank you!

I had to restart my BE and found that the iguana channels were set to
0 instead of what I had set them at (4). Do they get reset?

Anyway, I took your channel changing script (maybe you should put that
on the wiki) and found I needed to change the setting of where you set
the transmitter from 1 to 3

irsend set_transmitters 3

That was all I needed to do to change channels.

My next problem is the setting in myth setup. I have a PVR250 and
placed the channel changer script in the appropriate place, set it to
channel 3 and tested it with Live TV.  All I got was a blank screen.
(I have 3 other tuners that work fine and I switched to this one.)

I see in the WIKI that Myth does not take channel number but freq ID.
Is that still the case (don't know if the wiki is up to date)
If that's the case, that's probably why there's a black screen.
