I've heard about both, however I've never been able to distinguish how they are distinct, Mythbuntu as I see it is used as a Desktop environment, whereas MythTV seems to be installed on a TV itself with an equivalent App on the Mythbuntu desktop. I may be entirely wrong in making this assumption though.
I've also heard of Mythbuntu being used as a "frontend " with MythTV as a "backend " if someone could clarify this concept I'd be quite grateful as for me I thought MythTV also qualified as a "frontend".
- How are Mythbuntu and MythTV related and what are their major differences?
- What are the definitions of a frontend and backend in the case of Mythbuntu and MythTV?
- Is Mythbuntu required for MythTV to work?
I've already read the following questions but I've got very basic knowledge on this issue and none really explain things in an Average Joe-esque way for users with little knowledge on the subject.
