FWIW, on my Mythbuntu installations, themes are downloaded to
~/.mythtv/themes, not /usr/share/mythtv/themes where they used to go. I
have found the new theme download setup to be dodgy at best, but seemed to
have better success (probably purely coincidental) after opening up
permissions full throttle on the ~/.mythtv/themes directory. I had one
installation that absolutely refused to download themes (same symptoms
you're experiencing), so I manually copied the theme I wanted from a machine
that I COULD download from to its ~/.mythtv/themes folder.
Since doing fresh installs on all my machines, I have had no download
issues....not that a fresh install of the OS should make a difference.

I seem to be going steeply downhill here now. I read a post about
this having to do with permissions on /usr/share/mythtv/themes, which
made me notice that the MythBuntu theme wasn't even in there. I made
the mistake of trying to delete and re-download the theme, and I
I can't download any themes at this point at all. I've restarted the
frontend and backend, any no luck. What on earth am I missing here?
Can I just manually download it to /usr/share/mythtv/themes from somewhere?
