My current master backend is running EL4 along with a PVR-500. EL4  
works fine for a backend, so long as you don't need recent dvb code  
to enable one of the newer HDTV tuners out there. I'm moving to pre- 
FC5 for my master backend ever so shortly (tomorrow), partially  
because of the dvb issue (I'm adding more HD tuners), partially so I  
have some FC5 systems I can write about, partially because I just  
feel like it...
