See http://code.mythtv.org/trac , which explains how to get the stable 
version, so you don't accidentally upgrade to the non-compatible 
development version--as you would with the commands above.

Also, there's really no reason to get (and install) myththemes, 
now--since the theme downloader will allow you to download just the 
theme(s) you want.
