Looks fine to me.

Have you considered trying CentOS rather than Fedora or Ubuntu?  It has a much
longer release cycle and you can get additional repositories for installing
MythTV and various video card drivers.  I've been using it since CentOS 5 but
from CentOS 6 it supported my tuner card from a fresh install.  My MythTV
install on CentOS 7 works just fine.

I have a backend that also serves as a home file server, and then a front end
for playback in the living room.
