If you're confident in the changes, please update the script at 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Dish-change-channel-lirc.sh .  Also, if the 
up is no longer necessary with the guide usage, you may want to remove 
that (please test the various approaches by putting your STB on channels 
you don't have in your package and with blocked channels).

It would also be good to have people test the modified script and report 
the results here before you make the changes.
