I have never installed Android on a Raspberry Pi. I would be interested 
in how that works. I expect that it will not work well with the android 
version of MythTV.  I think the limited amount of memory will be a 
factor and I think android has a lot of overhead that raspbian does not 
have. Also you may find the hardware assisted deinterlace that we use 
with raspbian does not work on android.
