I was running 0.16 last week on a setup that included a server a few
PC frontends and an XBox.  I upgraded all the systems using apt
successfully to 0.18.  The mythweather plug in on the XBox needed a
little more attention.  Another annoying bit was that the mythtv
package insisted on installing mysql, mythbackend and mythtv-database,
but I just apt-get remove'd mysql afterwards and everything is running
nicely now.

I just did an apt-get update followed by apt-get install mythtv on the XBox.
