[mythtv] Ansible problems with raspberry pi

Hi Stuart

I rebuild my Raspberry Pi system and compiled V30. I found that ansible 
failed to install the compile dependencies. ansible stopped because it 
could not install libcec-dev. On debian stretch and raspbian stretch the 
package is called libcec4-dev.

It stopped before it had installed much at all. Is there any way to get 
it to skip the failing package and do the rest?

I installed the rest of the packages manually. There are a few more 
packages needed for V30 than were for V29 - as follows
libsamplerate0-dev libbluray-dev libxnvctrl-dev liblzo2-dev libxcb-shm0-dev

I added the full list of build deps to the wiki at 

Please update ansible to use libcec4-dev for stretch and make sure the 
new build deps I have listed above are included. It is possible I have 
some missing or some unnecessary ones, if so please let me know.
