Well, got some results as follows:
I've installed the linux-headers packets.
I did install a few modules after I built them (from http://git.linuxtv.org/media_build.git)
Then I used MeTV to scan for the channels.
I could only tune and view the 1st channel on the list.
Admittedly it was a bit laggy/glitchy and crashed quite often!
Hopefully it should get smoothed out anytime soon. ;D
