I actually just installed MythTV under Xen over the weekend using
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.  My Xen server is running Ubuntu 12.04 and I set up
a domU, then used tasksel to select the MythTV backend role, which
installed all the necessary bits.  After that, I was able to use X11
on my laptop, ssh to the new backend with X forwarding and run the
mythtv-setup application.
I'm still working on figuring out how to get all my old recording data
into the new backend, but I just haven't had the time to sit and do
