Sam, I am a relatively simple end user, but from my recent experiences, but
IMHO, Gutsy is a big improvement over Feisty:


So it appears that there is Mythbuntu Gutsy available, and so if it were me,
i would seriously consider reinstalling Mythbuntu Gutsy.  You are going to
get a much longer support cycle with Gutsy than Feisty.  IMHO, you don't
want to tweak Feisty now, only to find out that the community is moving away
from Feisty and toward Gutsy.  In my experience, when you go to a forum and
ask for help, the first thing that the Ubuntu users there will do is ask
what version you are running, and then they will give you grief if you are
running an out-dated OS.  Plus, Ubuntu really makes lots of progress between
versions, and so you might really be more satisfied with the performance you
get on Gutsy.

good luck!  Please let us know how you are doing.
