   Use what you're most comfortable with. Stability should be the same
regardless of what distribution you are using. The version of MythTV 
you run will primarily determine how stable your setup is. Just avoid 
using development snapshots and you should be fine.

   Mainly just don't mess around with it once you've got it deployed.
Treat it like an appliance that you're not prone to change frequently.

    As far as Ubuntu goes, I would tend to stick with 10.04 since it's an 
LTS version and old enough that it's probably more debugged than 10.10.
