You either have to use the test repository or download/install a few RPMs
manually (as I recall: libFLAC8, perl-XML-Twig, and PIL). This is because
MythTV requires newer versions of these than what comes with CentOS 5.1 and
the policy of atrpms stable for the el repositories is to not replace distro
packages. Testing in the el repos is basically stable + distro replacements.

I don't think freshrpms works with CentOS/RHEL; however, rpmforge does. I
used that to get VLC and a couple other things that weren't in the offical
CentOS repos or atrpms.
