Comment(by Bill Southwell <chimera_god at yahoo.com>):

 Trying to automatically set permissions on a USB plugin of the R5000, but
 it doesn't work.

 Edited /etc/udev.rules.d/40-permissions.rules and added the lines:
 KERNEL=="Cypress*",  GROUP="mythtv"
 KERNEL=="Anchor*",  GROUP="mythtv"

 ... but it does not work on plug event, for some reason.  If it worked, it
 could even be set to automatically load the R5000 firmware when plugged.
 (if it senses Cypress*)

 What does work is editing /etc/udev.rules.d/40-basic-permissions.rules and
 SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device", MODE="0664"
 SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device",                MODE="0664"
 ... to
 SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device", MODE="0664", GROUP="mythtv"
 SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device",                MODE="0664", GROUP="mythtv"

 But this means that any USB device plugged in will have a group of mythtv.
 May be too indiscriminate.

 Still stuck on no R5000 serial number.  Tried editing the database with
 mysql-admin, but in the capture-card table there is no 'serial number'.  I
 guess it's mapped from another name, but I couldn't guess what.
