Channel changing problem with HDPR from 5.1 to stereo channels

I have a HDPVR connected to a Motorola 6200 STB. I use firewire for channel changing. I also use the optical link for sound. I use AC3 for the sound.

The channel changing will not always work.

I found that I could easily change from a 5.1 sound channel to any other 5.1 channel, but it would not change to a channel with a simple L/R stereo. Everything works fine for the 5.1 channels.

I appears that something happens in Sage that prevents the channel changing program (channelw) from executing - there is not change in the STB channel display - not even a flicker. Sage thinks that it has changed the channel, displaying the new channel number, but the video (and audio) is from the previous channel.

Probably some small detail missing somewhere....

Problem not sound related - see my post in software section

After several days of troubleshooting, I found that the problem is not related to the sound. I used the debug files and found out that Sage is not forming the channel change string properly for a few channels. Maybe the channel database is corrupted? How to fix?
