[mythtv-users] Adding an HD-3000 to a PVR-350-only system

On a newly built system running Fedora Core 3
with this kernel, 2.6.11-1.27_FC3, I would like to
add a single HD-3000 card to the single PVR-350
card already installed and working.  The PVR-350
is being used only for video capture, not playback.

I've seen some good guides for installling HD-3000 cards,
but it's difficult to tell which of them really applies to the
kernel on this new system.  For example, can I use DVB
drivers (preferred) without having to re-compile this kernel?

It's a bit confusing to read Angel Li's Air2PC Guide which does
compile the kernel, and then read Jarod Wilson's Howto where
he states that he is using a Stock FC3 kernel.

Then, there's the question of which of the tarballs on the
pcHDTV site is the DVB tarball.

I can surely get there using the trial-and-error method,
but I'm just wondering if anyone has started out with a
PVR-3/250 card and then added an HD-3000 card.
If you have gone this route already, what were the main
steps you took?

Thanks for any help.
