I'm always surprised to read such comments.
I've been using Ubuntu for MythTV for nearly 3 years now.
First recording: Saturday August 4th, 2007
I've been religiously doing the current updates and the release upgrades
every 6 months, sometimes catching the next releases early during alpha
periods, sometimes picking up repositories for bleeding edge packages.

Regarding Pulseaudio, I like it on my desktops and laptops *a lot*. It

There is a problem on one or both sides of the fence. MythTV is the only
app I know/use with PA support that has issues with it.
My main BE+FE has no Pulseaudio, just plain ALSA, as i do not use it as

Pulseaudio is easy enough to get rid of on dedicated systems.
For shared desktops+FE, I wish there was a solution found between the PA
and Myth guys.
