This is exactly what I ment! Mythbuntu is released every 6 month and
seems to include the most recent MythTV (trunk) at that time, while
Debian does not? At least not if you want to stay with stable (or

I prefer to use a stable distro as long as possible. That's one of the
reasons why I chose Debian stable inthe first place. But I also don't

version of MythTV. That's why I think Mythbuntu seems like a good
compromise. I realize I probably can't both have the cake and eat it.
