incredibly informative "SA3250HD Firewire -- A New User's Findings" but I
still cannot figure out how to set up any of these scripts so they are
invoked by the GUI. My goal is to replace the standard firewire channel
changer with either the sa3250ch.c or one of the other improved changers,
put Benton's script in front of the changer so that it is invoked before the
changer, and roll it all into the GUI / backend so it is completely seamless
when changing channels. But I haven't the slightest idea how or where to do
that. If there's documentation on how to do this in the wiki I apologize, I
just haven't found any solid information on how to do this.
