mythtv, FreeBSD 8.X and my pcHDTV-3000

So, As I mentionned a few weeks ago I have been looking at finally 
getting my act together
and getting this pcHDTV up.

given the computer population around here it looks like the best use 
for it would be to run
a mythtv server on my newly acquired BSD system, and let family 
members run
mythtv clients on their OS-X laptops.

my first question is just for pointers.. do people have any tips on 
patches or even pointers to docs I may have missed.

The card shows up as:
none1 at pci0:4:1:0:       class=0x040000 card=0x30007063 chip=0x880014f1 
rev=0x05 hdr=0x00
     vendor     = 'Conexant Systems, Inc.'
     device     = 'Conexant 23881 Video Capture (NTSC) (2003)'
     class      = multimedia
     subclass   = video
none2 at pci0:4:1:2:       class=0x048000 card=0x30007063 chip=0x880214f1 
rev=0x05 hdr=0x00
     vendor     = 'Conexant Systems, Inc.'
     device     = 'CX2388x TV Capture Chip'
     class      = multimedia
