> Small note, Mythbuntu 11.10 is out and I am doing the upgrade on my two MythTV boxes (a living room backend/frontend box and a bedroom frontend only box). Bottom line, issues on boxes....
> On both boxes, issues getting X to start. After rebooting I can do a <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<F4> log in to a BASH prompt type "startx" and all is well there, but that is not being handled properly automatically.

Okay, a big thank you to user superm1 in the Ubuntu forums the way to

fix this part is to enter the following:

$ sudo su

# apt-get update

# apt-get upgrade

# apt-get remove unity-greeter

# apt-get install lightdm

# cd /etc/lightdm/

# mv lightdm.conf lightdm.conf.old

# pico lightdm.conf

In the lightdm.conf file put the following:



autologin-user=<<your MythTV user ID, ie: superm1 or whatever>>





> On the frontend only box, there are audio issues (read, no audio) and image quality problems with HD recordings.

There are still audio issues on the frontend box...
