Remember MythTV is currently version 0.20, that is it still has a long 
way to go before it is considered suitable for joe average.   It works 
really well once it is installed and configured but there is a bit of a 
learning curve for those new at it.

Rather than trying all the above distributions you would have been 
better to stick to one and put your time and energy into getting that 
one working properly.

Good luck with your search.
