For me it pretty much "just worked" .  That of course is dependent on
your Kernel, etc.  I'm running Fedora 11 and did all the dist updates
prior to install so that I would mentioned on the wiki to get channel
changes to work reliably.  I do not think these patcheshave the latest
and greatest Kernel.  Make sure you read the Mythtv HD-PVR wiki.

Make sure that if you're using the SP/DIF input to the  HD-PVR, that
its hooked up or it will fail (I had inadvertently hooked it to the
output instead of the input - oops)

I needed to incorporate the patches  are in the current .22 release.
