Yes, I've been letting my e-mail pile up, but I'm not done with
development, just been on hiatus for the summer (which is nearly over).
I expect to start working on R5000 (and coreavc) stuff again in a few weeks.

Well, the R5000, specifically for HD on Dish, is not working
particularly well in Linux at the moment. The issues are all fixable,
but you'll just need to be patient if you want me to fix them.
