Read this article [1], it talks about some problems in US regarding TV,
other than that, you can install myth tv using the terminal, sudo
apt-get install mythtv.

Thank you for getting back to me, but I looked at that page, and it didn't specifically note any legal issues...it did note the video formats used, so I can check up on that patent status of those...is that what you meant?

Thanks again for responding!

Yep, its only the video codes that cause the legal issues, the rest
should be fine :)
