i finally got pyobj pulled down from svn, no ez_setup...
installed easy_install (setuptools...egg, still no ez_setup...!@#$%%%%&^%#$
finally pulled ez_setup.py into pyobj/, python setup.py installs a buncha stuff, then builds against 10.3??? ( build/temp.macosx-10.3-ppc-2.6/) oh, well, if it don't care i don't;-) build's running...film@11

it recognizes my sammy tuner, but all it can do is record, no channel-changing.
