sysctl.conf, udev rules, (for RTC timing) or even the dreaded LIRC. It all
just worked (apart from the usual type of faffing with  xorg.conf). And A/V
sync is spot on with all sources, including TV - which it wasn't with
mythtv 0.26.

days'.

Not really a useful post from me but....

I have no idea what sysctl.conf is and I've only heard mention of udev and
never touched xorg.conf and I've had myth running for years.

Not saying I've not had to faff but that has only been with features that
were still in development or external scripts and the like.
