[mythtv-users] [mythtv0.23] HELP sending a PIN to mythbackend -> DVB-C

Some of the programs of my cable provider are "age controlled" and assume a so called 4 digit fsk-pin. Im able to track this request in the log-file. Now Im searching for a way to send my fsk-pin back to the dvb-c (cam) so that I can see those programs as well. 

Let's assume my pin is 1234

I tried some easy things like:

echo -e "1234\n" > /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0
/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 < echo -e "1234\n"

The adapter is blocked and no commands can be sent.

Please help me to send the PIN (preferred with shell scripts so that I do not need to compile the stuff) automatically or by key-press.
