In a non-MythTV environment I had some bad experiences with JFS under  
very heavy load and that pushed me to try ext3 for my MythTV box.  
However, performance recording/playing/working with HDTV files using  
ext3 in my MythTV box was so bad I moved to JFS for /var/video and  
that cleared things right up.

So +1 for JFS and MythTV.
