I'd encourage giving mythbuntu a try. It didn't get me very far due to
some quirky hardware and installation problems, but as already
mentioned it's an alpha build. However it's got a lot going for it, so
as long as your install doesn't throw up any bugs, it should work
really really well.

If it doesn't, I'd recommend having another go at Ubuntu if you
haven't tried out Feisty Fawn for MythTV. I set up a new backend
system with it and it went smoothly enough to get me worried, thinking
I'd missed something. There's also great documentation available at:


Hope that helps
