I'm not useing U-Boot yet. Looking at it, but taking baby steps.

I used Sylver's image and went with the most recent kernel so I could
use XFS for my myth partition, then set my default to sarge and used a
combination of sid with debian-multimedia and sarge and sid with the
main mirrors for debian in my sources list.

I have not posted the full write up yet due to a problem related to
the hdhomerun not being able to properly scan and set up channels.  I
worked around it by scanning from a differen't host then changing the
hostname for the cardinput table back to the kuro. Other than that it
works great, but I am looking at working out an actual patch to
submit. The next steps are to get my Plextor TV-402U working with it
as well.
