Oh boy, not to start a war, but:
Mac OS-X kernel is based on a Mach Kernel, not the FreeBSD kernel.  The 
Mac OS-X userland and lots of other stuff is based on FreeBSD.

Yes, someone is sort-of working on this. See

But since MythTV relies heavily on Video4Linux, I don't see how they are 
ever going to get it working without getting something like Video4Linux 
working.  I would really love it if they could get it to work, since I 
really love FreeBSD, but my hope is low and therefore I'm learning Linux.
