You and I appear to be in a very small minority.

I built an new tree last night with HVR4000 and HVR4000lite support 
taken from my other trees. After testing I'll likely push that tree up 
this evening. My dish is compromised right now, so no doubt we'll have fun.

Darron's patch has some IR and I2C related changes that I'm not 
comfortable merging, without more information/investigation.

We can persue those after the test tree is built, and merge any 
subsequent changes and/when required.

This will be a good step forward.
