Are you sure the problem is in your cable box?
You're sure your serial cable is good and has the correct pin-out?
You're sure the serial cable is plugged into the correct serial port?
You're sure you're running the program to change channels correctly?
You're sure the serial port is active in your BIOS?
You're sure ... well, you get the idea. Just checking! :-)
