There is a ticket that adds R5000 support to MythTV.  See: 
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/4752 .

I use it with DirecTV and it captures both SD and HD just fine (as long 
as it is MPEG2 HDTV).  The Dish version supports MPEG2 and (some?) of 
the Dish MPEG4 receivers. See the ticket and the nextcom wireless web 
site that is in the ticket for more information.

All you need is an EHCI high-speed USB port on your backend (or slave 
backend).  No intermediate Windows box needed.
