Bad news:  I asked on the xbmc-pvr channel and was told this mythtv
addon hasn't been maintained for months i.e. it apparently bitrotted.
There is a new one using libcmyth mentioned here:


only the git repo linked,


is a fork of the entire opdenkamp xbmc pvr, so I guess I'll leave
porting that to someone that actually uses mythtv i.e. not me...

 Sorry, :(
