I'm still on 6111 as well and it does everything I need. I tried a few
newer drivers that gave me problems that I had to back out of, so I'm
in no hurry to upgrade.

If it ain't broke...

Well, okay... I've been using the latest 0.3.6X drivers on FC1 built
from source with no problem, and actually, I believe I can perceive
better quality recently in my recordings. Wishful thinking? I don't
know. YMMV.

Long live FC1! I have spent so long tuning and tweaking my system in
attempts to reach mythtv nirvana, that I have little motivation to do
an OS rebuild just to get a 2.6 kernel.

But... there's always the *next* backend server. It's going to have
2tb of hardware RAID storage and 3 PVR500s and ... :)
