Cheap linux box

im looking to set up a cheap linux box solely for watching and recording tv on, with a tuner card. i was wondering what linux distro i should use. I've been using kubuntu for some time now and love it. but any suggestions on a better distro for this would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Yea, I've heard about mythbuntu before. but can it do other things? or is it solely for tv things?
  2. As far as I know, it's simply Ubuntu with MythTV and other multimedia software installed?
  3. Yup, Pyroflea is right as far as I know. :)

    mythdora and mythbuntu are fully functional although you may need to adjust the interface a little.

    You can also install mythTV and other multimedia apps inside the regular version of Fedora or Ubuntu, it will just take a little extra configuration.

    Good luck :)
  4. Yeah, just install Mythbuntu and then install any other software you want from the Ubuntu repositories.
