I really have followed Jarods description exactly (copy/paste 
instructions), but basically not much could be done wrong from 
installing the four CD's untill starting the apt-get update etc. I did 
of course also the last time install the latest kernel, but when trying 
# apt-get install ivtv-firmware
# apt-get install ivtv-kmdl-$KVER
# apt-get install ivtv

each package returned this error: Couldn't find package xxxxxx
(Did of course define $KVER properly)

This really should not happen, and I swear I have not deviated one mm 
from Jarods description. Anyway installation succeeded with yum, but now 
I get static/snow from the tuner after a reboot (worked before the reboot)

When I hopefully get this to work again I obviously need a backup 
program, so that I can go back to a working mythtv. I have now two times 
experienced that a simple apt-get dist-upgrade destroyed my working 
tuner output.
