Default Good distro for HTPC use?

Looking to convert my comp into a HTPC to watch Blu Ray and record TV and I'm just curious as to what a good distro for HTPC use would be? I'm currently just using Ubuntu at the moment.

Well than give MythBuntu a try since it is an excellent combination of Ubuntu with an up to date and tweaked MythTV install.
