wounded in the line of duty
I'm in no way promoting Ubuntu, but Ubuntu *may* contain fixes that the packages you are using do not.
Even using the Ubuntu packages I had to merge in some subversion sources to correct issues with MythVideo. I have just found that Ubuntu gave me a relatively good starting point to go from. Anyways, as you know, you could always package your own. I use your repositories at my day job. We use CentOS 5.2 as a "standard" desktop.
I've personally only experienced very minor annoyances with MythTV on Ubuntu, so I don't know what else to say.
I use P4 2.4GHz Intel, PVR-500 and a DVI => HDMI converter to connect my nVidia 5200 to my Panasonic 42" plasma TV and the quality looks great. Ubuntu/X.org/nVidia driver recognized it and set the resolutions appropriately with no difficulties at all. AC3 passthrough to my home theater receiver provides me with full 5.1 surround.
