I'm making some progress with mythtv.  Using the excellent guidance at 
http://wilsonet.com/mythtv/fcmyth.php I have 0.18.1-114 running on FC4.

Hardware:  V-Stream DTV DVB-T, 2.4GHz P4, 1GB ram

I can watch the composite input from a VCR ok, but no digital yet.

I adjusted the permissions on /dev/dvb so the card can be seen and 
identified ok, and the channel scan button is now active in the channel 

I'm stuck here.  I have no idea how to set up the scan parameters.  I 
suspect 'auto' is sufficient for most.  All I get is 'no lock'.  I've 
tried 571625000 for channel 34 (SBS in my area) and 520000000 (start of 
the UHF band).

What frequency should I use?
