As always with Linux there are many ways to do this but it goes
something like this.
If you have not already done so add the ppa for v31-fixes
/*sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/31*/
To see what versions of a package is available you can run this on the
/*sudo apt list -a mythtv-frontend*/
This will show a list of available packages for the package called
*mythtv-frontend *something like this *.*
This shows we have two packages available one for v32 which is the one
that is installed and one for v31 which is not installed.
You want the v31 packages so you will have to explicitly tell apt to
install that version like this :-
/*sudo apt install
Unfortunately you will have to do this for *all* the MythTV packages you
have installed (maybe someone more familiar with Debian/Ubuntu has a
better way). The packages to downgrade will be one or more from this
list (use the sudo apt list -a <package_name> or sudo apt-cache policy
<package_name> to see which ones you have installed):-
Finally in order to prevent apt automatically upgrading back to v32 the
next time you update you have to mark each package you just downgraded
so it wont update anymore.
/*|sudo apt-mark hold mythtv-frontend|*/
If you want to see which packages have been put on hold you can use :-
|If you want to remove the hold|
/*|sudo apt-mark unhold mythtv-frontend|*/
