[mythtv-users] Backend ext. channel change command passes wrong value? (0.24 trunk 25218)

Hi all,

I'm using mythbuntu 10.04 with JYA's repo. I just updated to .24
revision 25218, which seems to be the latest version in the repo.

After doing so, my external channel change command is not working
properly. I can run the command (a perl script) manually, and it will
change channels as expected, but when the command is executed by the
backend, it tunes to the same channel every time (specifically, it
tunes to channel 60 regardless of which channel is selected).

The backend log says that the "External Tuning program exited with no
error", so I assume it's executing the script just fine, but passing
the wrong channel number.

The perl script I am using is from here:

Is this a known bug? I'll file a bug report if necessary.
