I have been using MythTV for several years now. Usually the only MythTV installation I can get working is on either Ubuntu or Linux Mint based on Ubuntu. And the software and instructions from this website seem to be the only ones that work. http://parker1.co.uk/mythtv_ubuntu.php. With both Mint based on Ubuntu and Ubuntu the MythTV installation from the software centre has never worked for me.
I tried Linux mint 14 when that was first released and I tried 14.1. I did several clean installations of Mint 14.1 in my attempt at getting MythTV working but could not get MythTV to work on Linux Mint 14. I had to go back to Mint 13 for MythTV
I would like to use MythTV with Linux Mint Debian Edition but I have had no luck with this. I can get everything else I use working with Linux Mint Debian including my wireless Canon Pixma MG5250 printer and scanner. The only thing I want to use with Linux Mint Debian that I cannot make work is MythTV.
I really want to get away from doing clean installations everytime I want to upgrade my Linux installation and would rather maintain a rolling distribution like Linux Mint Debian, but not having MythTV is a deal breaker.
Can someone please give me clear step by step instructions that makes absolutely no assumptions about any existing skills or knowledge and download links for the correct software? What I really want is the Linux Mint Debian equivalent of the Ubuntu website http://parker1.co.uk/mythtv_ubuntu.php or at least a text document giving similar information and download links.
I appologise if all the relevant information can be found by scouring many websites and piecing it all together. I have spent several hours searching the internet and have tried searching like "Linux mint Debian MythTV installation" "Debian MythTV installation" and I have added words like testing, wheezy and sid to debian in an attempt at finding what i want. I am sure there must be other people who want MythTV on Linux Mint Debian who want to quickly and easily find a good step by step installation and configuration guide on the internet.
