Could you post the output of the command above? Was it really
"atrpms-synaptic" you tried to install?

In general apt warns you with bug red letters, if you are about to
remove packages from the list in /etc/apt/rpmpriorities, which
includes apt. Did you enter any "Yes, do as I say" confirmations?

MythTV works on Debian just as well, but you would not follow Jarod's
guide. Check the mythtv documenation for further steps/guides required
on Debian.
