George, In addition to all the thanks above, I would also like to thank 
you.  This is the piece of my previous MythTV experience that I am 
missing.  I run mythvtv from Axel's excellent packages (... ok so thanks 
to Axel too) so I don't have the source and all to compile this, but 
when/if RPMs become available, I will be one of the first to install 
them.  I might even look into pulling all this down and compiling it if 
I ever get a free minute.  :-)
