I think I will have the most success with compiling my own MythTV install as I believe there are some patches that need to be applied that I read about on the wiki. I'm writing to the group because as someone new to this, its difficult to decipher the age of some of the materials I've come across in the wiki's the forums, and the mail archives and whether or not they're still necessary in newer versions of Ubuntu and MythTV.
You no longer need to compile MythTv from source to use the HD-PVR.
Just follow the steps located here - http://www.mythbuntu.org/auto-builds
Install the deb file (really easy) and then don't forget to check for
and install updates.
