As I understand it, heliocreek is a fork of MythTV; therefore, you don't 
install MythTV then install heliocreek, you install heliocreek /instead 
of/ MythTV.

However, the only real "benefit" of heliocreek seems to be the YouTube 
integration.  If you really want YouTube, you may want the MythTube 
plugin ( http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/5589 ).  However, getting it 
would require the use of SVN trunk, which means you should sign up for 
the -dev and -commits list and read them and keep up with changes (i.e. 
several hours per week of work to use trunk).  Therefore, it may just be 
better to use MythTV for now, create a menu entry in the Myth menus 
using EXEC to launch your browser and have it go to the YouTube site, 
and wait patiently for MythTube to be available with a released version 
of Myth.
