Why are you moving from Mythbuntu to Fedora?

Your instinct is right. Don't mix rpm repositories unless there is a  
specific reason you need to. I used to mess up my nvidia packages all  
the time because I originally followed a guide that said I should be  
using freshrpms as well as atrpms. As soon as I got rid of freshrpms  
and stuck with what Axel (ATrpms) says works, all was much better. :)
