Are you running the latest -fixes branch for Mythbuntu?
I have not followed the entire thread, but my Mythbuntu 8.04 system has been rock solid for ages.
For h.264 stuff there are some packages built by Paul Kendall that have more up to date ffmpeg and such.
You could try them to see if they improve things. I believe he is working on fixes for New Zealand
DVB-T stuff that is broadcast as h.264.
