[mythtv-users] ETA for FC4 RPMs?

Thanks for replying.  I will try the FC3 RPMs.

I had Mythtv and FC3 working fine but then had to wipe my server for a
different reason.  After that wipe the jitter came up.  I don't think
Mythtv is the issue.  I think it's IVTV.  I have tried about four
drivers from stable and unstable with varying degrees of success from
way worse to almost normal.

I thought I would try FC4 just to get a fresh start.

I have had Mythtv running for a couple years now without anything but
minor issues (like xmltv).  It seems like the problems came about
after the PVR-150 support was added to IVTV (I have a PVR-250).  Just
a hunch.
