In the end it depends on how complex your individual frontend setup is, as
that will determine the time required vs the time your up for putting in...

Myself I have pretty simple setups and dont have any ts_video rips in
mythvideo; so a frontend can be running in a basic way in under an hour for
a fresh build as storage groups stop me having to mount with NFS and setup
all the UIDs and GIDs. I also have copious notes for the backend build;
except for the very recent addition of a dvb-s2 card.

I have not done an upgrade of more than one ubuntu distribution version
without me then having to do a rebuild at some point... but that's my fault
going through the linux learning curve.

I only have a single backend with5 tuners, using bluetooth ps3 remotes and 2
further dedicated frontends(one used just for music)
