Thanks Gary. I do indeed plan to use your script as the basis for mine.

I'll have to do some hacking though, because I also want to save some 
power by powering the STBs down when not in use, so I'll have to power 
them up from the channel changing script as well.

Mike, happy to hear that the channel changing script is a property of 
the tuner rather than of the video source. When I'm done I'll go and 
make this clear on the wiki though, because it says in several places 
that it's in the video sources.

Cheers, Jan
