Personnaly, I switched to vdr since dvb-t was launched in my area and 
Mythtv (0.18) disapointed me : slow channel changing, no signal 
monitoring, buggy support for hardware mpeg2 decoding (nvidia).

So I adopted vdr and I'm quite happy with it :

- much better picture with a dxr3 card that is well supported by vdr
- very light software (no X11 no mysql needed)
- simpler OSD than MythTV (which was too computerish for my wife).
- regular updates.

Now there is Mythtv 0.19 which seems to be a major update and fixes many 
of the points above.
But I don't regret my choice and I will go vdr for a while.
