I got mythtv up and running on gentoo earlier this year. I think the biggest
hassle was setting up the trial account for local listings, after that, I
was able to hook up a VCR and make AVI movies from VHS Tapes.
I used avidemux to edit the videos.

I'm curious to know whether or not you can get Comcast Digital Cable to work
w/ listings, and On Demand available.
