I guess its time to answer a few questions...

I am using a P4, 1.8G, 640MB. The R5000 alone uses about 25-30% cpu usage. Starting MyHD to timeshift (playback while recording at the same time) makes the total 40-50% usage (overlay off) or 91-100% (overlay on). No data loss was evident through the 100% usage peaks.

Does the R5000-HD modification contain an IR emitter port & IR emitter cable that changes channels on the STB in accordance with the program scheduled for recording through Zap2it.com on the PC?
If so, is the code able to address Dish 6000 IR code addresses 1-9?
The R5000-HD has ir sending and receiving capability. It will be integrated into the STB (no external IR diode or detector). The R5000 will respond to events scheduled on the STB or from zap2it via the "rec" links. A separate PVR app will hadle the zap2it requests and will be available soon for beta. We will be supporting the multiple remote address codes as well.

What are the effects to the captured stream when you change from one HD channel to another while recording? I'd hate to ruin a recording if I changed channels by accident.
The re-muxing sw should recover and restart the stream. However, playback will most likely be broken (several second black hole). This is an unpredictable situation and different decoders will respond to it in different ways. You should avoid doing this!

Is it possible to allow all of us to download clips? John
That is up to the owner of that server. We do not currently maintain a server for this purpose.
