Install with MCP vs. iconnor ppa?

I see that Mythbuntu Control Panel has install option for ubuntu 20.4 so wondering about the tradeoffs of the two ways to install.

MCP is supposed to work good. Never heard of iconnor ppa. Personally, I used apt-get myhthtv.

Only the Mythbuntu PPA's are updated and maintained by the MythTV developers.

For MythTV v31.x (fixes/31) use
https://launchpad.net/~mythbuntu/+archive/ubuntu/31

For MythTV v32-pre (master) use
https://launchpad.net/~mythbuntu/+archive/ubuntu/32

MCP is the old Mythbuntu Control Panel that has been resurrected from the dead you can use in conjunction with the PPA's to help you set up your MythTV system.

To clarify.

Mythbuntu Control Centre(Center) was the old configuration utility. It has been superseded by Mythbuntu Control Panel.
