There were three main issues:

1. TV Out was solved by external VGA to TV converter. I spent 20+ hours on the ATI TV out never getting it to work.
2. Soundcard issue causing NVP: Prebuffering pauses which caused watching TV to twitch. Repaired by directing MPEG-2 audio directly to SPDIF and using aggressive setting.
3. Remote control was not listed, downloaded the Technotrend file from Lirc site. Also had to manually edit the ~/.mythtv/lircrc-file to match the technotrend setup file.

Hardware was not the problem, the EPG was. I got it working though...
