I tried testing with only this newly generated code and eventually was successful in getting the "ocStbHostAVInterfaceTable" data to be displayed by performing an "snmpwalk" command.

That is correct. Currently those file must be hand generated.

It has been a while since I have worked on the mfd code, so I don't recall
exactly why I didn't get around to allowing a whole mib to be processed at
once. There could have been a technical problem, but it's more likely that the
funding for the project ran out, and I just haven't had any free time to
dedicate to the issues.
NH> does it real matter which way the code is generated?
Nope.. once it works, it should produce the same code..
