New HD5500 works but Crashes

Forgive my ignorance, I just set up MythDora, and have had a great time with my PVR-150 so I bought and added this card. Now when I watch with the HD5500 the picture is incredible, but my system either locks up showing a freeze frame of the tv show, or else it exits from live tv with message "Error was encountered while displaying video"
I have been reading the forums here and at mythtv and looks like I need patches "Please apply the patch from ticket #3963 as well as 2335_fix_2.diff" but I don't know where to find these, or if I use Yum to upgrade myth, will it pull in these patches?

I am new to linux, and have been learning and reading as much as possible (I have linux for dummies), but it is frustrating because it takes me hours to find the simplest solutions, so I make my appeal to you experts with much grattitude. When I installed card I did not load any drivers, until I learn more the CD that came with the card is basicaly a coaster, just set it up as in the included documentation.
Any help greatly appreciated
When I installed MythDora I did the Yum myth upgrade command (on Jerod Wisons mythdora page, and it was easy and succesful, is there something like thisI can type into command line like this to upgrade drivers for card? I don't know where to put all the folders etc on the disk, which ones I need etc.
System is P4 3.0 Prescott
1 Gb ram
HD5500 and PVR-150
Nvidia FX5200
S-Video out to Sony WEGA 32 standard TV

You can install the latest V4L-DVB drivers from the CVS repository.
http://www.linuxtv.org/repo/

First, you need to have mercurial installed.
Then type in this for the latest v4l-dvb source:
Code:
hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb

And this for the latest dvb-apps:
Code:
hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/dvb-apps

The instructions for installing it are also at that web site.

I read up on mercurial on the site you refered and also in wikipedia, sounded great, but on trying to install on Fedora 6 I encountered error. Unfortunalty my skill level in linux is too low to know how to compile from source. At this point I would hire someone to install everything for me or to load my drivers. Very frustrating. Error I get is when software updater tries to run:
Component: Software Installer

To compile programs you need to have a few things installed. I usually install everything from the Development section when I do the initial installation. Smile

First, you need to have the kernel sources installed for your current kernel.

Then this is what I have installed::
gcc
gcc-c++
qt & qt4 (qt is needed to compile MythTV)
