Hey Jeff

I'm having some issues with directv.pl. I can sit in a terminal and run ./directv.pl off, on ,change channels and it works great.


I go into mythtv-setup and add /home/mythtv/directv.pl to external command blah blah under input sources.

Finish up and then run mythfrontend. Go to change channels.. nothing... nada. exit

No errors listed during the use of mythfrontend.



Now I try to use ./directv.pl off,on, change channels.. it doesn't work anymore.

I copy the fild to a new name.. such as directvbackup.pl Give it rights using chmod 755 to the file so it can be executed. Now magically the file works.. until I put it under mythtv-setup again and then it doesn't?!?!

Is this a user rights issue? Only after I call on the script does it stop working.
