Then why don't you use one of the appliance distros like LinHes 
(http://mysettopbox.tv/)? These are purpose built mythtv solutions where 
any updates are pre-tested before release.

Generally when I see people using something like Mythbuntu, I assume 
they are not seeking an appliance but a box that does myth as well as 
some other things (e.g. web server, desktop, etc). The myth appliances 
on the other hand tend to be stripped down to what is required to run 
myth hence improving security and reducing interactions.

All of my front ends have always been appliance versions. My backend 
used to run on my main server which is CentOS based but I have since 
implemented VMWare on that server and I created a guest which is now a 
myth appliance.

I find this keeps my myth life simple and stable.
