Not really. With no mythtv experience it took me less than a day to setup my
original system (putting it on a already running fedora 7 system at the time),
the second time I set it up took <2 hours, and that included compiling mythtv
from source. And if you do attempt it there is a mythtv list with a number of
guru's on it which usually respond reasonably quickly if you can properly
describe the issue, but for the most part the howto's describe the steps needed.

I could see what, I am only about 40 miles from the antenna and if the weather
is being difficult things sometimes get messy.
