Are you kidding? That's horrible advice to give.

Not sure, but I do see a good number of ERRORs on my setup as well (FC3
with ivtv-0.2.0rc3a). Recordings are working very well except if large
amounts of IO occur while recording at which point I get messages like this:
ivtv: ENC IRQ OVERFLOW: #0 Stealing a Buffer, 256 currently allocated
When this happens a recording will continue to record OK, but for some
reason myth will think that the recording is extremely long, for
example, 8 hours long instead of 1. This will make doing things like
skipping forward and backward work strangely.

I suggest that you write a cron script to email you what packages are
available to upgrade on a nightly basis. Then you will know what
updated packages are available and you can update as necessary.
