#6505 closed task (wontfix)

Allow for smarter channel change scripts by passing more info

This is to remind me to add the infrastructure for smarter channel changing scripts. In particular I'd like to pass the video device, so that if you are using a PVR-150 blaster the correct IR blaster can be invoked automatically, and also send power up and power down commands so that external STB's can be put into power saving mode, much the way a HDHomeRun can be currently. Finally, I'd like to both the freqid and the channum, since that could be of use for things like an external firewire channel changer.

This isn't a high priority task, but it has been nagging me.

See #4963 for a patch that passes freqid and channum to channel change scripts.

I never got around to this while I had an STB that needed special wake up and sleep commands, so I doubt I will in the now that I don't have such an STB to deal with.
