Dave, I would be very interested to hear any info you have

Don, it'll take a while -- I looked at the drivers and the 2.6 kernel drivers are built for FedoraCore2 (32-bit version), so we're going to start out with that, and then experiment in a Debian pure 64 chroot. Gentoo people have the driver working for amd64, so I don't think there are any real problems. (I need someone else to handle the project, so I'm recommending an optimal entry point.)

MythTV compiles on amd64 using the following procedure:

   * get liblame0 and liblame0-dev from
   * add this to /etc/apt/sources.list and run update:

     deb-src http://dijkstra.csh.rit.edu/~mdz/debian unstable mythtv

   * wajig source mythtv
   * cd mythtv-0.16
   * vi debian/control -- add  this to dependencies, after liblame-dev:

     |  liblame0-dev

   * apt-get install libqt3-mt-dev libmysqlclient-dev liblircclient-dev
     libartsc0-dev (this will also install mysql-common)
   * fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage

I'm doing this just to test the build, to help me decide whether to advice somone else to buy and amd64 for a capture project, so I've not installed it. I've already tested that a bttv capture card works.

The second decision is the pcHDTV capture card, which seems to be getting mixed reviews under amd64.
