It doesn't work with mythtv-suite either. It only works the very first
time when the dependencies are not present at all on your system. Then
yum install mythtv-suite pulls in all that is missing. But subsequent
yum install/update mythtv-suite etc. will not update the dependencies,
yum will only check whether they are present.

There have been a coupld of bug report by people who wnated to upgrade
mythtv to see a fix from release-XX-fixes and were disappointed to not
see the fix. It turned out they thought yum install/update mythtv-suite
would do upgrade all components/dependencies, which it didn't.
