Yeah, you get a little used to that...  Honestly, though I also have the 
DirecTV HD Tivo and the sluggishness of the Mac Mini is only slightly 
worse than the Tivo.

What I would do, is open the dmg file, and then drag the application to 
your Applications folder (you should see a link to is on the left of the 
Finder window.  When you drag the application to the Applications 
Folder, it will highlight and you can just drop it.  You'll see some 
dialog about files being copied, etc.

Next, you can click on the Applications folder on the left of your 
finder window and then drag the MythFrontend application to the Dock, 
this will make it much easier to launch.

If you want it to launch at startup, go into System Preferences (usually 
a link on the Dock, otherwise it's in the Applications Folder).  Click 
on the Accounts link in the "System" section.  Select the account you 
want to launch it upon logon, and click the "Login Items" Tab.   Then, 
click the + sign and select the MythFrontend application from the dialog

I don't have any of this on the website, it's just my personal blog 
site, I'm just a big fan of Myth and figured, this was the only way I 
knew to give something back to the community.   But, there is a great 
deal of information on the Wiki.
