 I'm sorry it doesn't work for you but:
 lsusb |grep Anchor Bus 002 Device 006: ID 0547:1002 Anchor Chips, Inc.
 Python2 WDM Encoder
 this looks broken.
 To me it appears another module may have claimed the device.  The R5000
 does not use valid producid/vendorid strings, so there is no way to
 autodetect one properly when plugged into a linux system (in Windows this
 works because the R5000 vendor just assumes he can claim that interface,
 but in Linux that isn't an option)

 I would need to see your dmesg logs after installing the firmware.  It is
 much more helpful if people run into problems to contact me directly or at
 least respond to the ticket when they run into issues, rather than working
 in a vacuum, since it can be difficult to get the R5000 device initialized

 But to each his own, time is precious, and I can understand not wanting to
 fiddle with it.  The R5000 is certainly not plug-and-play in Linux, and it
 isn't possible to make it too much better than it is now.
