 My Myth setup includes two SA4250HD STBs, which I control using Firewire.
 I've been using MajorIdiot's sa4250_ch channel changing program, but found
 it didn't handle multiple STBs well, so I modified it a bit.

 My new setup has a shell wrapper, sa4250_ch_guid, and a modified version
 of Major's channel changer, sa4250_ch.

 Invoke sa4250_ch_guid with the GUID of the box you want to control and the
 channel as parameters. You don't need the whole GUID, just enough of it to
 be a unique search key (there is no checking of this so make sure you have
 it right).

 sa4250_ch_guid determines the node number of the STB with the given GUID
 and passes that as a parameter to sa4250_ch. This is necessary because
 node numbers often seem to change at unpredictable times.
