The Mythfrontend version must match the Mythbackend version (for example
0.28.x).  The above MythTV.org links include official support for
Raspberry Pi with MythTV 0.28.x, and unofficial support for MythTV 0.27.x.

If you happen to be running Mythbackend 0.27.x, I wrote a tutorial on
how to set up a Raspberry Pi 2/3 using the Raspbian Jessie OS and a
pre-compiled tarball.
