    Currently most of the DDNS options in the linksys routers are set to connect to the large dydns companies..
    I was looking for an option that would let the router connect to a Bind Server and use
    a TSIG md5 authentication ..

    Has anyone modified any of the firmware to do anything like that?

    I don't know why Linksys hasn't done this already by themselves..

    If you mean that you use rndc or another utility to control a BIND DNS server.... Well, that's a highly unusual situation for some user to be able to control a public DNS server. It is exactly the reason why DynDNS.org and other such update services exist - to prevent "ordinary" users from just updating a public DNS server with whatever names they want, restart it, stop it, clear the database, etc.

    I think you'll seek far and wide to find any end user set top box type equipment that can do that. (BTW, I think most DNS admins use something other than a set top router to maintain their DNS servers...;)

    If you want to update your own (controlled by you) DNS server, look into setting your DHCP server to do that.
