Just wanted to add another POV.  First off, I've had no issues, audio setup
or otherwise, with MythTV and F8.  I recently upgraded one workstation that
I use as a front-end from F8 to F9, and so far I'm not too happy.  I got the
nVidia binary drivers installed using a package from Freshrpms.  However,
even then the driver has some issues; no 3d stuff, and I can't use OpenGL in
Myth.  The nVidia stuff aside, the Mythtv packages from ATrpms work just
fine with F9.  I've had other general issues with F9 related to KDE4 and
stuff like that.  Overall I agree with the last post; wait a few weeks until
some stuff gets squared away with F9, and then go F7 --> F9.
