Fedora Core 1 runs fine.
The mythtv Installation done with Jarod's guide. (Very good)
The tv-out quality of the pundit is disappointing.
You're not going to like that. So use the 350-tvout for playback.
But... using the Pundit for 2 PVR cards, is not a good idea.
I had lots of troubles to get 1 PVR 350 inside.
To get two of them inside, serious case-modding is needed.
