I use my mythtv backend for multiple other things. So I usually just install
Ubuntu and get it setup how I like. Then I install the mythbuntu packages
from the ubuntu repositories to get a nice clean mythtv setup with minimal
effort on my part. You may want to look at the mythbuntu-desktop and
mythbuntu-control-centre packages. The first will install everything you
need for a mythtv system. Including a lightweight xfce session if you want
to use it that way. The second will give you the mythbuntu control center
app which gives you a nice gui for most of the setup things you would want
to deal with. With this setup, I usually just let the system login to the
mythbuntu xfce session and run mythtv that way. If I need to do other stuff,
I will just log into my default ubuntu gnome session. It works great.
