Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

type ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="amd64" emerge packagename
Substitute packagename for whatever you like. I'd recommend a MythTV box myself, but KDE's TV app should work as well. The thing about being masked it that they are considered "unstable", but on a 64bit platform, that could simply be a lack of testing. I've found gentoo to be the most stable of any 64bit platform.
Unfortunately, even though mythtv is available in the portage tree for amd64 without any over-riding to be done, it wont compile properly. Kdetv has to be overridden, but since its ./configure script has a couple of lines mentioning 64-bit architectures, I reckon your hunch is right and it just hasn't been tested enough to be considered stable. (And I've seen it in SuSE's 64-bit offering.)
Trouble is though, kdetv has fallen victim to another of my current woes - it's dependant on Ghostscript, and that has an even nastier compiler problem...
