What you are asking is “Is there a set of 18.04 debs for 0.27”

I’ve not done exactly what you want, but I see no reason that it would fail, and it is quite easy to do:

clone the mythtv repo, selecting the branch you want
build it (follow the wiki, use anistable)

The advantage of this way is a) it will most certainly work b) the build installs in /usr/local so you can have a 0.27 frontend to run without in any way interfering with your 29 system (because the ppa’s install in /usr)
