Good job Gus, 

  If I may ask you, it seems we have the same environment
* Fedora 4 also following Jarod's guide.

Installed a fresh copy of Fedora 4
I did the yum upgrade
Did get both atrpms.repo and freshrpms.repo 
Got and installed mythtv-suite

But when I was going to setup the database, the
/usr/share/doc/mythtv-0.18.1/database/mc.sql was no where to be found

Did I miss something....

Subject: [mythtv-users] Last error. Almost there. Help appreciated!

I have the latest 19 release of Mythtv on Fedora 4 following Jarod's
All is working, I can capture from /dev/video0 and play it. 
Backend is setup, and master ip is
Frontend is on the same machine

My error is this:
When I try to play live TV, I get a blank screen for about 20 seconds or
so, and then it returns me to the menu screen.
Here is the frontend error log:
