Was this something that happened after a MythTV update or after some
other change?  If it's a MythTV update then could you could try git
bisect to pinpoint the problem.  I know it's long winded but it
ultimately works.

If it happened without a MythTV change then perhaps look at Ubuntu
package updates - try less /var/log/dpkg.log

I can't get my head around why MHEG startup should take 6 minutes.
There's a problem lurking here.
