If I install Mythbuntu or add Myth-desktop to my current Ubuntu installation, do either of these packages automatically install the cx18 driver and/or the firmware files?

Just wondering if life gets better and easier with Mythbuntu than trying to get Hardy to run a Hauppauge 1600 tuner

As far as I know, drivers and firmware are not included in the latest release(8.04). I was recently able to install an HVR-1600 on Mythbuntu following the instructions on the MythTV wiki with relatively little heartburn: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_HVR-1600#Installation_Guide
