Comment(by alannisota at gmail.com):

 The reason your box doesn't change channels is that there are no channel-
 change codes in the r5000 code for it.  I don't know anything about the
 DCP501, and don't have any test streams from it.  You'll probably want to
 start trying either setting it to type 'dsr' or 'hdd', since the dish-
 network/expessVu types are very unlikely to work with it.  It is also
 possible that this box won't work at all in Myth until you can provide me
 with some test streams (which means getting it activated 1st).  It depends
 how how closely the box follows the mpeg2-ts format standards.

 As for getting the remote to work, I have codes from NextcomWireless, but
 I was never able to reliably turn them into USB commands.  Instead you'll
 need a windows install (real, not with a virtual machine) and will need to
 capture the channel change commands from the r5000 software.  I can then
 build the codes for your box.

 So getting this box fully functional with myth will take some effort on
 your part.  I can't say how much until you've activated the box and see
 whether it can capture with one of the existing types or not.  Contact me
 off-list and I'll work with you to help collect what I need.
