Not currently.  The Debian Developer who had been maintaining the MythTV
packages (outside the repository) no longer has the time.  Many thanks
to Matt for his efforts over the years.

There is an effort underway to generate new packages, and maybe even try
to get them included into Debian.  See this thread on the -dev list for
details: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/163269

In the meantime, if you download the old (source) packages (still on
Matt's repository, just moved IIRC), with a few tweaks you can get them
to build.  You'll need a few packages from Christian Marillat's
repository; Google will point the way.
