I'm planning to install MythTV. It's not clear to me so far exactly what I need to install or what I need to do.
YaST lists a bunch of mythtv packages from packman. The latest available seems to be 27 whilst I understand the current version of mythtv is 29. I don't see any particular package that installs it. The closest I have found is mythtv-0_27-setup and its description says "MythTV provides a unified graphical interface for recording and viewing television programs. Refer to the mythtv package for more information. This package contains only the setup software for configuring the mythtv backend."
I think, the MythTV Packman packages are very old and unmaintained. The latest update is from 2013 (MythTV 0.27).
I have updated the Packman RPM source files to MythTV 29 for personal use. I also added a patch which resolves an issue with German DVB-T2 HD and surround sound.
Unfortunately I do not know the legal situation for distributing MythTV source and binary packages. Probably it is OK to distribute the RPM SPEC file and the patches. If you are interested, please write me a mail.
You can also build MythTV 29 from the sources without using RPM.
