Livna does not support/have MythTV, but atrpms does.
As for MythTV, livna has it's own faad2, so in order to install
it, you had to remove faad2 (among other components, I cannot
remember, off-hand) so I did install MythTV, but then I wasn't
able to get it working probably due to the Diamond XTremeTV
USB 2.0 (PVR660RCUSB) device so I joined ivtv group was was
going to get help there.
But then, I wanted mp2splt from atrpms, but there were more
conflicts but I am not ready to tackle/explain that one, just yet.
I chose livna as my single repository since I read in many places
that many people loved it, but then I came across others who were
saying that it was better to use atrpms and to forget livna due to
many conflicts, that atrpms would provide most everything that I
would need. So at that point, I thought I'd give it a try, to remove
all of my livna installs and go with atrpms.
What I mess I got into! Heck, transcode is/was not available on
atrpms (i386 nissing: oversight?) and was stuck in a rut. Not only
that, I could not get all of my favorites I got from linva, which was
not available in atrpms, and decided it was not worth it, so I
decided to switch back to livna.
Once I get livna back, I will explore a little more on how to get
MythTV and mp2splt from atrpms or another repository installed.
