I sometimes have issues when switching inputs in LiveTV, but no problems for
recordings. I have a couple PVR-150's so I don't use the NTSC tuners on the
Kworld cards often, but every time I've needed them, they worked fine. I
also see ticket 2822 with a reference to switching between analog and
digital and one changeset committed a week ago. I haven't updated for 2
weeks so maybe that patch will help. And for reference I am using QAM.
As for distros I strongly recommend Arch. It's extremely lean and fast,
always current and has a great selection of packages. FC 6 and Ubuntu are
bloated in comparison. Gentoo is nice, but I got tired of constantly
