I get the basic/analog channels plus the stuff in the middle.  I haven't 
gotten the HD
channels to work but I think that might be pilot error.

My problem is that viewing is sporadic.   When I select "Watch TV" the 
front end
times out waiting for the backend, and the backend times out because it 
says it didn't
get a signal over firewire within 15 seconds.  Once things start working 
it's pretty
reliable, but more often than not after I boot things aren't working.  
There was a
thread awhile back regarding point-to-point vs broadcast - I've tried both.

This is with mythtv 0.18.1 and fc4.  I've observed this with fc3 as well
