In the pro-Mythbuntu camp, I'm using it on three computers: a BE-only, a
FE/BE, and a FE only.  The FE-only is an Asus Pundit, and the backend
hardware includes an HDHomerun, a PVR-500, and an Avermedia A180.  Most of
the recording is in HD, playback on one FE is HD, and the other SD.  I've
never had any issues.

Assuming you're running the same version of myth as Mythbuntu, I think you
can run a Mythbuntu FE off the CD if you want to test it without messing
with your existing config.
