A number of packages won't install on sarge, because it looks like
they were compiled on sid.

These packages include: mythdvd, mythmusic, mythvideo, mythweather,

From memory, Debian source code is also available on the above link,
so the best solution probably would be to recompile it for sarge.

(it would be nice if somebody could do this and make the results
available... <grin>)

However, the basic mythtv works fine for me. It looks like it was
compiled against the correct libraries for sarge.
