[mythtv-users] Why no External Channel Change Script for DVB cards?

Hi, I've been building my dream MythTV setup for several months and knocking
off one issue at a time, but this one has me stumped.
My backend has a couple of pcHDTV HD-5500 cards and a Haupauge PVR-350. I
plan to use the HD-5500's to receive OTA HD, and connect the PVR-350 to my
old DirecTV box. I just put up a new antenna and Channel Master 9521A
rotor. This rotor has a remote and can be programmed to move to a
predefined direction. (I live in the boondocks of NW Ohio and am 60+ miles
from any major TV towers, so I need to move the antenna to get a strong
signal.) I have created a script ( Antenna_GoToChannel.sh ) to run an IR
Blaster to change the antenna to the proper preset position. It works great
from the command line.
Now I wanted to have MythTV call my script when I changed channels, but I
see no "External channel change command" for the HD-5500 cards, only for the
I searched the Archives on Gossamer and someone said there was none for DVB
cards, only V4L cards.
So I have two questions:
1) Is there really no place to call my script, or am I missing
2) If not, why? Not complaining, I just want to understand.
