I'm on Debian Sid, will the new repo work ?

No, you will have to compile yourself, wich is easy.
I did it on squeeze, no problem. In fact, I am compiling right now, so I have the newest version.
If you are interested, I have got detailed instructions at hand. I suppose you could use them for Sid as well, maybe with some minor modifications.

I'm interested in any details (instructions or experiences on Debian (preferably Squeeze. I'm about to turn my new Fusion based media server into a combined front- and back-end.

Can someone please explain a bit more the advantages of TVHeadend?
I have Sky (UK). Does this mean I can access my sky subscription using TV Headend? How is this possible via software alone? I have an emachine HR1401 atm as my HTPC and an unRAID server.

I build from git since the repos are ubuntu. You don't want to mix Debian and Ubuntu.
Here is how I did it on 32 as well as 64 bits Debian Squeeze.
OK, this assumes that you have a nvidia graphic card installed.
First you have to get your repos right, meaning enabling contrib, non-free and add multimedia.
My sources.list looks like this:
Don't forget to install debian-multimedia-keyring
Then make sure your dependencies are met and install your nvidia driver:
(all as root)
Now you are ready to compile xbmc and tvheadend from git.
That was xbmc. Now for tvheadend, if you want that too, do this:
Now you want to autostart tvheadend.
Then copy and past this into /etc/init.d/tvheadend
Restart your machine and you are done.
Should you encounter problems accessing the webui of tvheadend, have a look at this.

I recently installed xbmc-pvr and tvheadend. I have it setup but tvheadend will only pick up one channel, where mythtv finds close to a 100. I'd prefer to use tvheadend but am not sure where to start in troubleshooting this.

Maybe someone could help you when you provide information, such as:
where do you live, what cable or sat company did you subscribe to, what have you done to configure tvheadend, is your cable/sat provider encrypting the broadcasts and so on...

Thanks a lot bas.t, you probably saved me a lot of time. So you got tvheadend from git too. I will play around a bit to see if I can get it to work with the on-board AMD gfx but I got a nVidia card as a fallback. I want to stay on Debian if possible. I do understand the ones running Ubuntu (nice critical mass and ppa is a really cool concept). I tried to install 11.04 at first but even samba seemed broken so I just gave up and installed good old Debian...

I live in central virginia and I am stuck with shentel for my cable. So far I have stuck with the basic scanning options which seemed to work with mythtv. I have been using the standard cable QAM256 option when adding DVB by location, and then when it finishes I am mapping them. I know some of the channels are encrypted but they still seemed to work with mythtv? I am new to this realm of pvr, but I should be able to figure it out with some guidance.

may I ask about future plans for tvheadend in your https://launchpad.net/~lars-opdenkamp/+archive/xbmc-pvr repository? Since xbmc-pvr is moved to the new repository, is there any chance for tvheadend updates? I know I can compile from git, but your builds were tested to work Thanks a lot.
