I've upgraded two front-end systems from F15 to F16 over the last couple of
weeks.  Haven't really run into any major issues to speak of yet.  MythTV
and other related packages are from the ATrpms repo.  I did have some
stuttering when trying to play back an HD-PVR recording using one of the
VDPAU profiles last night, but I didn't really have time to troubleshoot.
 Fortunately the system is powerful enough that I was able to switch to the
"Normal" playback profile and things were fine.

Haven't touched my back-end system yet.  That is still running F14.  I've
been contemplating an upgrade, but still in the planning phase.
