Which provider would you be looking at? The code supports DirecTV (only
SD) Dish (HD and SD, but it needs a bit more work to make it more
stable), and some C-Band (which should work pretty well). I have lots
of test streams that would let me get other boxes working reliably, but
between work and the fact that it is summer, I haven't had much drive to
finish off the code and fix the known bugs.
The R5000 solution is quite expensive. While I haven't tried it myself,
I'd seriously consider an HD-PVR instead as it doesn't tie you to a
single provider/STB. Your support is likely to be better as the number
of users will be significantly larger.
