Basically MythTV on EL-6 is still a work in progress but we're slowly
getting there. Since RPM Fusion, like Fedora, doesn't allow packages
that replace existing packages in EL, things have moving very slowly.
One point of information: The version of V4L in RHEL is very old and
so far they have decided not to update it[1].

I've removed m2vrequantiser for the 0.25.1 build as a dependency and
built mplayer (which supplies mencoder) but it may not be in the
stable repository yet.

We're (Ken and I) working on xmltv[2] and pmount now.
