this is all technically not needed. Motorola boxes should be set up with broadcast connection and 400mbps. If channel tuning fails, use the 6200ch in the contrib folder and specify the "new" method.--Steveadeff 22:22, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Sorry Steve, but I've been using 6200ch since you recommended it and still have had to fiddle with the plugctl script at least once to restore connectivity with one of my two cable boxes. (Sadly, the number of (infrequent, but still annoying) failed channel changes hasn't gone down, either.) YLee 16:35, 8 March 2006 (UTC)
I forgot to mention that 6200ch isn't an entirely out-of-the-box solution, anyway; you still need to specify the node with -n in a multibox situation. You don't actually have more than one FireWire cable box, do you? If you did I bet you'd run into the (for example) "both boxes can't be on broadcast" issue.YLee 16:37, 8 March 2006 (UTC)
