Could someone PM me with, or post instructions, on how to install an r5000 mod into a moto dct2000 cable box? I have the mod just need to know the solder points. I have an smt rework station and soldering skills.

Thank you.

Anyone ever seen the "Error: Failed to set USB transfer Mode" error dialog? Basically it seems my R5000 (VIP-211) is non-functional and all I get is a popup with that error whenever I try and start a recording....

My 211 with an r5000 just started throwing the same error message. Does anyone have any information on it?

I've had this before. First check both ends of the USB cable. Second unplug the receiver, wait one minute then plug it back in. The receiver will reboot (takes several minutes) and everything should be ok now. If not delete and re-install your drivers.

Thanks. I discovered that the female plug on the r5000 board was no longer securely connecting with the USB cable. A piece of plastic tape seems to be holding the USB cable in place.

Anyone running their r5000 with MythTV? I'm perfecting a patch for 0.28 and need beta testers. (and a place to upload the saveset)

Anyone using MythMote? I run it on my Xoom tablet to control the home theater, but the buttons are way too bright for a dark room. So I've re-rendered it with a dark theme and better icons.

Can anyone provide the instructions for installing the R5000-HD in a Dish ViP 722? Know anyone that can do it?
post #2771 of 2773
Not sure if you had found the VIP211 instructions yet: http://www.nextcomwireless.com/R5000/installation_vip211.htm . I hope this is somewhat helpful.

I am looking for someone who can install into a moto dct2000 cable box. If anyone knows please post or PM me. Many thanks.

Thanks. I had not found these instructions.

I don't have any special equipment or skills. I can solder. Looks like you have to connect 4 wires, which doesn't sound bad. Maybe just need the correct type of soldering iron and a good magnifier.

The big problem seems to be figuring out where to connect the 4 wires in something other than a ViP 211.

Sorry, looks like 5 wires.
