[mythtv-users] Setup questions (FC1)

I've been (very slowly) working my way through Jarod's setup guide. 
I've gotten to the point of testing out the input & output of my 
pvr-350 and I've got a couple of questions:

- piping the input directly to the PVR's composite out works fine, but 
if I capture it and play it back with mplayer, I get video that looks 
like it's a TV channel with the horizontal hold all messed up, i.e. a 
lot of diagonally distorted crap.  Any hints as to where I should 
start in fixing this?

- I'm getting an error when I try an apt-get of lirc-kmdl-$MYKERNEL. 
Apparently there's no lirc-kmdl-2.4.22-1.2179.nptl_47.rhfc1.at 
package.  Is upgrading my kernel and then retrying the lirc install 
the right thing to do?

- In general, is it a good idea to go ahead and let up2date do it's 
magic, or is that more likely to screw things up than anything else?
