Personnally I went through this
- Fedora 6 up until a few month (well at the end no more mythtv updates, but it was working so why upgrade ?), this install went through a lot of modifications, initially running on its own, then as VServer guest, then as a Xen domu with PCI passthrough, and finally chrooted under Centos 5.
- I saw Mythbuntu, and thought "This is the way to go". Did a test install, everything worked. Few weeks later I managed to get an "upgrade window" from my wife :), installed it, upgraded everything, bummm no sound. Seems like the latest ubuntu kernels doesn't like my pundit P1-A2 integrated sound chipset.
- Finally I decided to keep my running Centos 5 and simply installed MythTV on it.
And I must say, after thinking about it, CentOS 5 + MythTV (thanks ATrpms) meets my personnal requirements for my media center:
- rock solid
- no risky updates - I'm running Ubuntu on different systems since 6.04, and i've seen some updates (not upgrades) breaking anything from sound to network, even X11 once.
- no need for an OS upgrade every year
So if you ask me, give CentOS 5 a try.
