askPlease feel free to ask your question without asking if anyone is around or if it is alright to ask. Many people check back periodically and may answer your question when they see it. IRC is not normally an instant fix so check back often for an answer.
autobuildsAuto builds contain more recent bug fixes than the normal Ubuntu repository contains. See http://www.mythbuntu.org/auto-builds for more info.

disableTo disable the MythTV backend from starting at boot, simply do "echo 'manual' | sudo tee /etc/init/mythtv-backend.override". To restore the auto-start at boot, delete that file "sudo rm /etc/init/mythtv-backend.override"
dist-upgradeThe difference between 'upgrade' and 'dist-upgrade' is that 'upgrade' is only allowed to install upgrade packages that are already installed while 'dist-upgrade' is allowed to install new packages or remove packages based on new dependencies and/or conflicts. When upgrading to a new major MythTV version, it is necessary to do the 'dist-upgrade' as the new libmyth package will need to be installed.
