I've got a few more tricks up my sleeve before I'm willing to kick it
to the curb. We'll see how it goes.
Now, I wouldn't normally recommend potentially trashing your system to
support a video capture device, but I have to say it was completely
painless on mythbuntu. I am experiencing some stability issues with
trunk right now and I've started paying attention to the -dev and -
commit lists now (instead of just glancing at messages). If you're
afraid to jump right in, I recommend following those lists and
strategically choosing when to upgrade based on bug reports, user
reports and features that get included.
