OK I went to the wiki and found this:

Sorry if this is duplicated.. Having problems with gmail interface.. 

NOTE: Following these directions makes it impossible to use the analog
portion of the pcHDTV card. It is recommended that you upgrade to the Linux
2.6.17 instead. Do not upgrade to 2.6.18, the ivtv drivers are using a new
API in this release which is not yet complete. 

*	Compile the kernel with the pcHDTV HD-3000 drivers normally. 
*	Compile and install the ivtv (0.4.x) drivers. 
*	Remove the eeprom.ko module from the ivtv directory (should be
/lib/modules/2.6.15.x/ivtv-/tveeprom.ko). There is another eeprom.ko that
will work perfectly with the IVTV cards, but the IVTV version will not work
with the pcHDTV cards. 

*	You will also have to remove the v4l driver modules for the pcHDTV
card (cx88 and cx88_blackbird) then insert the dvb driver module (cx88-dvb)
before starting mythbackend. You also have to be sure that the IVTV modules
are loaded before the dvb drivers. 

It sounds a bit complicated, but if you follow these instructions you should
have no trouble running ivtv 0.4.x and cx88-dvb cards in the same system. 

FC6 has kernal 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6

Which leaves me confused.. Can someone point me to instructions for getting
a PVR500 and HD3000 running under kernal 2.6.18-*?

Or are the instructions above good?  My biggest problem is finding
instructions to follow.. I'm never sure if what I'm finding is out dated
