this works:

Test1:1:PVRINPUT|SVIDEO1:P:0:301=2:300:305:0:9012:0:0:0
Test2:1:PVRINPUT|SVIDEO1:P:0:301=2:300:305:0:9013:0:0:0
Test3:1:PVRINPUT|SVIDEO1:P:0:301=2:300:305:0:9014:0:0:0

I will think about a possibility to call an external script (e.g. 
/usr/local/bin/extern_channelswitch.sh)  in SetChannelDevice() with two 
parameters: card-number (e.g. 1 if the available pvrinput device that will be 
used is /dev/video1)  and the SID (Service-Id, e.g. 9012 for channel 12 in 
your receiver)

you would need to write a bash-Script (extern_channelswitch.sh) that executes 
your dct6200 binary with the needed commands.  Should be simple.
Please contact me privately with an example how your dct6200 binary has to be 
called. Is "dct6200 12" sufficient to switch to channel 12?

This solution could indeed be useful for other users, as it is not limited to 
your box. The script could execute lirc irsend or whatever.

I can't promise too much but I have an idea and will see if I get it working.

Greets,
