Good news, the channel change is the last command issued.  "6200ch -v -n 0
-m -e 100" does a menu, and exit, and a channel change, in that order.  I
only had a small window to test, so only got to try it once, but the STB was
at channel 100 at the end.  I'm pretty sure, but can't swear, that it wasn't
already on 100 to begin with.  This is exactly what I need.
