I was in a similar situation a while back. All my myth boxes were on
Fedora; but my desktop had wandered from distro to distro until I found
Ubuntu. Once I had locked into Ubuntu for my personal workstation, I found
alternating between Fedora and Ubuntu somewhat bothersome.
Mario used to have a great how-to for Feisty posted on his website, which I
used. It's no longer there. But the install is almost as easy as running
Synaptic and installing the mythtv packages. I am sure that the links
provided by others above will work well for you.
My biggest problem was getting lirc to work. Here is a site that gives a
great how-to for lirc: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Install_Lirc_Feisty
I have never regretted moving from Fedora to Ubuntu for my myth boxes. But
I still remember the nightmares over past struggles with package dependency
conflicts with yum (and even SMART). Since moving to Ubuntu, I've never had
any of those problems.
