I'm in much the same place -- I got as far as scanning for channels in
my area (25 miles west of Boston, MA) to create a channels.conf file,
being able to use mplayer to look at each of them, and finding that
channel 2, PBS, is the only one that I can receive reliably with the
omni antenna that came with the stick sitting on the couch next to me.
(Yes, I was doing this while watching live TV on the regular set :-))
I have high hopes of spending some more time on this effort later
For those who follow after and dig this email up out of an archive
someplace (gossamer threads is a great place for finding stuff like
this), I've been following the instructions given at
http://mcentral.de/wiki/index.php/Em2880 on MythBuntu running on a
woefully underpowered very old laptop.
