Hi all,
   I am just starting into my first attempt at a MythTV box. 
Everything is, so far, going pretty smoothly.  I am using Jarods HOWTO
and at this point(just after getting lircd to work) I have one
   What I read this:

UPDATE: I think I finally have a completely viable, universal fix to
get both ivtv and lirc modules (no matter which lirc module you're
using, as long as its in modprobe.conf) loading very early in the boot
process. I simply made a few changes to rc.sysinit, which you can add
to your system via a patch I've generated. You'll still need to remove
the first line from /etc/udev/rules.d/lirc.rules, leaving only
'KERNEL="lirc0",   SYMLINK="lirc"' in there, then download and apply
this diff:
# tail -1 /etc/udev/rules.d/lirc.rules > /etc/udev/rules.d/lirc.rules
# wget https://svn.wilsonet.com/svn/mythtvology/trunk/rc.sysinit-mm.diff
# patch /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit < rc.sysinit-mm.diff

With these changes, everything finally initializes correctly at boot
time on my boxes. I never really looked into this one much earlier,
since my boxes never reboot. ;-)

I am not sure if this is NECESSARY or just something that is
recommended.  Is there anyone out there that has used this and had
success with it?  Does it work all the time or is it a YMMV sort of
