With Xebian did you follow the instructions from http://bit.blkbk.com/?
They worked very well for me. 
BTW, (this might have changed) there were problems with the 1.1
version of Xebian and mythtv.  1.03 should be used instead.

I probably still have a few gmail invites.
Drop me a line (off list) if you'd like an account.
