There are quite a few components that comprise the entire MythTV 
experience as packaged by ATrpms. The package "mythtv" is just one of 
them. Try yum install mythtv-suite, which is a dummy package that pulls 
in all the other components as dependencies. (The backend, frontend and 
setup are all independent packages.)
