Have you tried forcing a refresh of the downloadable themes? From the
theme chooser page, press 'M' and choose "refresh downloadable themes".
I just cleaned up my .mythtv directory (rm -rf ~/.mythtv/cache
~/.mythtv/tmp ~/.mythtv/themes/TintedGlass), started v33, and was able
to successfully download the TintedGlass theme.

You can also test by trying to download the theme directly. Here's my
output from doing this: 

  $ wget http://themes.mythtv.org/themes/repository/33/themes.zip
  $ unzip -l themes.zip  | grep Tinted
      2525  02-20-2023 23:05   33/TintedGlass/themeinfo.xml
     41026  02-20-2023 23:05   33/TintedGlass/preview.png.thumb.jpg

You can also issue the following command and see what mythtv is trying
to do:

  $ mythfrontend -v general,gui | grep theme

I occasionally have problems where I have to quit the frontend and
restart in order for it so show a newly selected theme.

Let me know how this goes for you.
