Thanks, I hadn't looked at it in portage for quite some time, but as
you seemed to suggest it is in there again I checked.
Quite some time ago the then maintainer stopped and mythtv was removed
from the tree. I haven't upgraded since as that would mean creating my
own ebuild. I have seen some ebuilds in private overlays but never
came around to any action.
But I now see that somebody has taken it up again.
But anyway thanks for the ebuild.
