Thanks to everybody, and a sommary:

I figured that clicking "install" on the mythbuntu CD was so little 
effort that I'd try, and it seems like this is a good choice. I have 
only tried 720p content (no 1080) so far, so there is still a slight 
chance that I'll need a custom compile on at least parts of the system.

Things to remember: set shared ram to max (512 ) in BIOS, pick 
proprietary nvidia driver when the installer gets to asking about video 
driver.  Pick VDPAU renderer in the MythTV setup.

Almost a no-brainer, but you still have to pay attention and not just 
click "Next" on auto-pilot. The default for type of install for instance 
is combined FE/BE, so you have to keep your brain engaged and select FE
