I think I've got it. I removed all the old myth stuff, added 
libqt3c102-mt, and then the myth packages you uploaded. I can't get 
mythbackend to install (not that I need it, this is a frontend only) 
which also means the mythtv package won't install, but am I right in 
assuming that mythtv is just a container for all the other myth 
packages? i.e. if I have all the other packages installed, I don't need 
mythtv? If so, then I should be pretty much done! I won't know until I 
get home if it actually worked or not, but it looks good so far... :)
