Strong, very strong second here to abandon the old 1.6 stuff.

Having built two MythTV systems, both using kernel 2.6.12 with
DVB support built in, I can emphatically recommend moving to
the lastest kernel.

This could mean that you might have compile mythtv yourself
to get the DVB support turned on within myth, but again - it is
really worth it.  All the old battles go away, and you are left with
a solid, reliable, working HDTV video recorder.
