Has anyone checked out the VIP622 source code?

http://www.dishnetwork.com/content/products/receivers/dvr/SourceCode/base/index.html

"Misclinux This contains many GPL programs that are used on the DISH 322, DISH 411, DISH Player-DVR 522, DISH Player-DVR 625, DISH Player-DVR 942, ViP211, and ViP622 DVR."

You cannot compile because it needs source that is proprietary, but has someone looked at it to determine how difficult some of the enhancements and features we want would be to implement?

Any comments on this?

Thanks,
Apco25

Download one of them and see if there's comments regarding what changes or additions they made are. I recall that in the past, one of E*'s developers was active in the Linux community, so I'm sure changes were submitted to the kernel development team and those misc packages. Whether or not they incorporated them, who knows ?? They may be rather unique to Dish's hardware and of little to no value outside of there.
