I can't say I'm a 'hardcore tweaker', but I run 2.6.9 on Gentoo as
well, and I find it more responsive, and all around much more 'nice'
to work with than 2.4 was...normally I keep fairly current with the
pre-release kernels, but simply haven't had the time to move to
2.6.10-rc3...I'll probably just wait for the final at this point.

I've got a PVR-250 in there, and have lirc working with a universal
remote  (URC-300), since the box is a dedicated HTPC box, I run
blackbox on it as it's window-manager, so nothing specifically
