By the sounds of it, I'll hold off until after the weekend :) Having said 
that I am itching to try this so I may well fill the database by hand over 
the weekend - got saturday to myself as my other half is going out for the 
night. Couple of quick questions first though :

1. Are you guys all working from current cvs ?

2. I have heard some conflicting things on this list about which dvb 
driver works with the myth code - I am using the latest linuxtv driver ( 
not dvb-kernel just the plain DVB ) - can u confirm which driver works 
correctly ?

3. This is a bit OT but I've had problems with getting dvb and bttv to 
load at startup - is anyone else seeing this ? The modules.conf entries 
with the driver don't seem to do anything. If I modprobe the dvb modules 
from /etc/rc.d/rc.local then bttv doesnt work saying it can't find 
/dev/video ( any of them - and I have tested this with xawtv trying 
multiple different video devices ). However, if I do exactly the same 
commands from a shell after everything has loaded it works fine - very 
confusing. I've got a feeling it's something to do with the char-major-81 
entry, which in my redhat setup is set to bttv, but I don't really 
understand enough about the modules.conf aliases to sort this out. Should 
this be aliased to videodev, and then bttv and dvb added as 
char-major-81-0 and char-major-81-1 ? Any ideas ? 

I'm really glad you guys have  persevered with this - I know Isaac 
occasionally mutters about getting rid of the dvb code as nothing seems to 
be happening with it, but I think without dvb support Myth will lose users 
in Europe - and for my money it's a lot better program than any of the 
others out there :)
