I would guess (although I'm not sure how I would verify this) that MythBuntu just uses the "upstream" version of MythTV from Lucid with a bunch of additional utilities and niceties thrown in but it seems possible that perhaps they are completely different builds (hence the potential problem).

I know I could probably easily undo these kinds of things (which would be really nice for a real FE) but I'm just wondering if there is a simple way to side step it.
