i'm currently doing the same thing. i used VDR for several weeks, and am now 
trying mythtv. I think the ease of migration depends on what OS you have. I 
was using vdr on RH 8.0, and i dont recommend putting MythTV on RH 8.0 - you 
will need to upgrade X, qt, and a whole bunch of other stuff and end up 
getting yourself in a dependency spiral of despair.... 

in the end i had to trash my system and start from scratch with a nice 
gentoo installation.....
