"wheel" is either an old UNIX or BSD convention that has been in most new
distributions replaced with the "sudo" group.\

Not quite sure what your level of familiarity is with *nix, but basically 2
lines above that in the wiki it basically reads "do whatever is needed to
make the mythtv user able to run sudo without a password, perhaps for 1
command, or everything by using the (theoretically) preexisting group that
has historically done this (wheel)".

Hope this helps,
