Not an error.

No theme errors in the info you posted--just a couple of messages 
telling you that you have some old, legacy, pre-0.22 (IIRC) themes on 
your system that it's refusing to use (because they're legacy themes).

How do you know it didn't?  "Timed out waiting" isn't an error.

The how is the standard (and almost universally ignored) approach:  post 
logs (not excerpts).

The person who doesn't know what's happening and why it's not working is 
really (no offense intended), the worst possible person to decide which 
information in the log is important.  So please, post the full log, as 
described at http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Posting_Logs .
