Opinion on new Distro.

I have Ubuntu 7.10 on my Dell 1501 running with a 1.8GHz Sempron and 1GB of ram. Ubuntu runs great but I do notice that I do not do any “heavy” computing on this machine. I am thinking of changing OS to a more entertainment friendly Distro. Mostly I surf the internet using a wireless card, watch a lot of podcasts, download TV torrents and would like to add a Hauppauge WINTV-USB2 99016 to use LIRC and a PVR. I occasionally use Openoffice but that is about it. Would Mythbuntu work out or can anyone give me their opinion on what they use/would use?
