Oh yeah. Nope, I didn't recall.

Nope. That'll only get the mythtv package (and possibly libmyth sucked 
in). Try:

# yum install mythtv-backend mythtv-frontend mythtvsetup libmyth

See where you're at after that. I'm not all that familiar with yum, 
dunno how to search the package db via cli, but there's a yum gui also 
(yummi, IIRC)...
