Yes, when it works.  I just rebooted to f16 3.4.2-1 / nVidia 295.59 / 
myth 0.24.3 and did delete all, yes all, cards.  It still doesn't see 
any dvb hardware.  Two cards have analog sections which do appear.  I 
tried mythtvsetup -v all but didn't see anything that looked more 
informative than I've reported before.

Scott Harris sent a 'me too' to the ATrpms list.  Fortunately I can 
revert to 3.3.7-1 / nVidia 295.49 and it Just Works.  I rescanned as 
well. That _is_ painfree once the correct set of transports is in the DB.

I suppose the problem ought to go to Fedora or linux-media but testing 
puts the box effectively out of use.
