The best and brightest are chasing this but they need more specificity. 
  For 2.6.20 kernel/Mythtv.20 only:

If your setup IS working and you installed from svn, did you install 
from .20 trunk or .20 fixes, and in either case, what revision level?

If your setup is not working, what were you doing just before it 
stopped? System upgrade?  New install - from where, RPMs or svn or 
tarball and what revision or version level was the Mythtv software at?
