I have some perl that connects to the sky serial port and gets the channel
name/number. Based on skyd by Steve @ nexus.
I am writing a script that checks that myth is idle and changes channel on the
sky box to see what channel name is on what number.
Ideally the next step is to feed this into the xmltv update system one day.
My skybox solution is 99.9% reliable - especially since this script now emails
me to tell me if hasn't changed channel (ie the box locked up)
