Are you sure you have it plugged into an ehci port?  grep usb 
/proc/interupts and see if usb4 is ehci or ohci (or possibly uhci 
depending on your mobo).  If it is not ehci, move the r5000 to a usb 
port that is ehci.  The R5000 support in mythtv does work very well.  I 
record several shows per day every day of the week.  Mostly standard 
def, but some high def also.  Of course I am using Directv so I can't 
speak for the Dish support, but most everyone else is using Dish.
