[mythtv-users] Jarod's Guide / atRPMs general questions

I was just wondering some general things, and I don't think I have seen these 
questions asked before so I thought they might have an appeal to more than 
just myself:

1. After my initial install using Jarod's Guide for FC3 I changed atRPMs in 
apt from stable to testing.  This upgraded my ivtv driver from 100zz to 
0.2.0rc3a.  Under 100zz I didn't seem to get any errors in /proc/interrupts.  
Now I get about 2% errors for the ivtv interrupts.  This apparently doesn't 
affect the quality of my captures, but it is puzzling.  Anyone else have this 
problem?  Is it any cause for concern?

2. How often should I do an apt-get upgrade?  It seems like I could do at 
least 10's of MBs per week in upgrades if I wanted to stay absolutely 
up-to-date.  As far as security updates this would seem to make sense.  I 
don't know if it makes sense in general to do so much updating if my system 
is stable and doing what I want it to.  Any opinions?  One update which I 
would like to make is avidemux2 since the atRPMs version (2.0.28) seems to 
have some problem that the dag version (2.0.34test2) doesn't, but I would 
have to uninstall avidemux2 to make the update unless I do a complete apt-get 

Any and all feedback will be greatfully accepted.  TIA!
