However, the HD-PVR has an IR sensor built-in, and from what I can gather, there is support for it in lirc, but this support is kind of an in-progress thing.  I want to use Mythbuntu for my myth system, and upgrade the lirc drivers to handle the HD-PVR sensor.

No. Everything after option 1 there pertains to Linux, nothing Fedora-specific at all.

For Fedora 12 though, it should all Just Work, right out of the box.

Its not. See option 3 in the url you referenced. (but I'd use the latest git head, rather than the version referenced there).
