I'm glad to see someone focus on Ubuntu. Are you using the default
Gnome, or did you switch to something else.

I wish there was a deb package for ivtv, then the install would almost
be as smooth as an apt-get on FC. My only complaint about the Ubuntu
route is that when I installed the base os, I setup a mythtv user.
When you apt-get install mythtv, it wants to add a mythtv user, and
will bomb if you already have one. Very annoying.

Good luck with your guide.
