it wasn't a direct reply to your email but to the thread, more so a reminder 
that the new MythTV Wiki is up, and those who wish to support MythTV by 
writing helpful FAQ's etc should take advantage of it. 

The links and all that were posted are great information, and even if the Wiki 
entry is just a bunch of links to sources of information right now its still 
a great way to archive this information for further MythTV users.

In all, anyone that has an issue and has found a solution are encouraged to 
make a writeup at the new Wiki to help any future MythTV users that may 
encounter the same issue. There is a hardware section, create a page for the 
piece of hardware such that someone, if not you, can write up a full page on 
getting said hardware setup for MythTV.

As for the a LiveTV FAQ about the changes, Its a great idea, but also don't 
forget that there is a user manual, and this will need to be updated as well. 
I think we would all love to see both come to fruitition with what may well 
be a shortly upcoming 0.19 release.
