Comment(by Lingerie Ninja <ninja at mailinator.com>):

 I'm trying to get a motorola dcp501 with r5000 working.

 I can load the firmware (512 byte packets) and get the serial number (via
 "r5ktest -t 0 -m 6")
 But I can't seem to turn the power on or off via software.
 When I use the r5ktest program to do any power related change it says it
 is doing it, pauses and prints a second line reporting that the power
 state is the same as whatever it was previously.

 For example:
 # ./r5ktest -t 0 -m 8
 Turning STB Off
 Turned power On

 On the plus side, Myth is also able to see the device and retrieve the
 serial and I can add the DCP501 as an r5000 device.  But I have yet to get
 it provisioned by the cabletv company, so I can't say if it is able to
 record anything yet.

 And FWIW, I get the same ID string out of lsusb that Bill Southwell was

 Bus 004 Device 003: ID 0547:1002 Anchor Chips, Inc. Python2 WDM Encoder

 so I think that's normal.

 Also, I am using the latest patch -- 4752_r5k_r19_trunk20440.patch on
 trunk20450, patch applied cleanly, only one file had an offset of a couple
 of lines.  My other inputs are all HDHomeRun's and they appear to be
 working just fine with this build.
