I'm trying to get mythstreamtv installed. I followed the instructions in
this post, and I'm close, but it's still not working. 

Running install.sh went fine. I did have this problem and did the same
to fix.

Then I edited init.php with instructions from this link:

I still have issues with the translations. I followed this link, but it
says to look for // themes/default/streamtv/welcome.php
in ./mythweb/languages/English.php file. Then you're supposed to add:
'StreamTV - Create File'  => '',

I did not find any reference to streamtv in the file. I tried adding the
line anyway, but when I do I get a blank screen instead of the web

Even with that problem, if I click on StreamTV the next page does not
show me any of my recordings. 

I'm also not sure what do to with this part. Does this mean to
add /usr/share/mythstreamtv/ to the PATH statement within

Any help is appreciated.
