I would really like to use this, but I can find any howtos, that I can
figure out how to use. And, as far as I can se, you need the Epia kernel

Wich I good to work with ivtv drivers, but now I can watch TV or
recordings. I just good this comment from mythfrontend:

Using mythfrontend --verbose backplaying just give some info about
/dev/nvide0 not found. Which is true, because I don't have any nvida
cards.
