(R5000-HD) had mods for Dish, DirecTV, etc. that allowed users to record their programming. It appears the R5000-HD is no longer available. Want to know the real story about the early days of DirecTV methods of transport then I suggest asking member dr1394 (Ron). He did a lot of the engineering work on their system.
IMO, most folks will have little or no interest in devices that can only do H.262 transports. There are many media servers and players that can do so much more, i.e., serve & play MKV, M2TS, FLAC, MP3, etc., etc., (see below) in addition to streaming from several IPTV providers (Amazon, Netflix, VUDU, etc.).
I purchased one of the Sencore 998C cards and may play around with it someday but I do not have an intended use for it.
Example, this is the file types the WD TV Live

Audio - MP3, WAV/PCM/LPCM, WMA, AAC, FLAC, MKA, AIF/AIFF, OGG, Dolby Digital, DTS
