What do you mean best in graphics? There's a lot of programs that people who enjoy graphics use, w/ Gimp probably being at the top of the list. Or do you mean has the most eye candy? Well, again, most distributions can be set up w/ Compiz, which is probably what you're talking about, but a lot of that depends on the other hardware of your machine, and you've really not given any info in regards to that.

Almsot every distro supports DVD video and multimedia support, you just have to install codecs to make it happen. The saa TV Tuners, to my knowledge, have pretty solid support under Ubuntu, so I imagine they do under other distributions as well...

Do some googling and you'll find your answers.

There's a flavour of Ubuntu called Ubuntu Studio which will probably have a bigger number of multimedia programs installed by default.

But ubuntu studio comes w/ a group of problems all its own. You should see the number of people in the #ubuntu channel having problems w/ this OS. I generally recommend people stay away from it, install a normal Ubuntu OS, and just install the programs they are wanting. All the programs included w/ studio, are in the repos, so its not that difficult.

YMMV, and probably will.
