Let me correct a couple of statements:

o CentOS/RHEL is a great platform for video hardware, more and more
  myth users go that route, especially ivtv users.
o All Fedora stock kernels are supported by ATrpms, and more. You may
  just have seen the "more" part of it, if you looks closer you'll
  find the kmdl you need (although not for xen on Fedora).
o There is very good ivtv support for CentOS kernels.
