No you don't. You have to know the right place to look. Don't start with
Google, start with the mailing list archive.
Search for specific text, or browse by thread. If its something that just
happened on your system, chances are you won't have to dig back very far to
find useful info, even if you don't know exactly what to search for.

I don't know any details about said FAQ, but I think its worthwhile if people
will actually read it. Its sort of a catch-22 though, unless its in huge red
letters on every page of mythtv.org (and even then, some folks would manage
to miss it). Here's a proposed first item for the FAQ:
Q: What if I have a problem?
A: First up, read the official documentation at mythtv.org. If you've already
read it, read it again. Then read this FAQ list. Now, search the mailing list
archives at http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/. If you still
haven't found your answer, visit mythtv.info and poke around. After that, try
Google. If you still don't see anything, read
http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html, after which it is probably
safe to take your issue to the mythtv-users mailing list.
