You assume that mythtv users are mostly using PVR x50 cards? I think
most are doing DVB based setups (or ATSC) instead, which is in modern
FC kernels. The existence or not of a driver is not very much relevant
for mythtv/freevo or friends. In fact the driver <-> application model
is quite orthogonal (and that is good).

There are rpms for ivtv since two or three years at
ATrpms. BTW ATrpms even hosts the ivtv project ...
