I just got a few minutes to dig.  The "on" command does nothing.  It
does not turn the box on or off.  The "off" command toggles the power
state, so it doesn't even reliably turn things off.

I'm stumped at this point.  I'll have to poke a little at the doc that
Christian sent and at the code for both sa3250cmd and 6200ch (and look
at the patch proposed to 6200ch) and see what I can figure out.
