This three part screencast will walk you through a MythTV install using MythDora, an "all-in-one" MythTV linux distribution. As MythDora installs MythTV and Linux, it will format your hard drive, install all the MythTV components, and walk you through the configuration of the critical components. If you are new to MythTV and have a spare machine to install on, MythDora is an excellent way to try MythTV for the first time.
MythDora 5.0 Install Screencast
The first step is to install the MythDora operating system, which is based on Fedora. This first phase will format your hard drive and install the core Linux OS. It is very similar to the first steps of a standard Fedora install.
MythDora 5.0 - Part 2
In part two of the MythTV install screencast, we will configure MythDora. This consists of all the configuration that is needed to make the core MythTV software and hardware work with MythTV.
MythDora 5.0 - Part 3
In part three, we will configure MythTV itself. MythTV is a very powerful system, but all the configuration options and steps can be overwhelming. In this final part of the screencast, we will walk through the configuration needed to make my HDHomeRun, a network attached HDTV tuner, work with MythTV. We will conclude this part by actually watching a few seconds of live TV.
Below is the older screencast from MythDora 4, the previous version.
made huge improvments over MythDora 3.2 in the areas of hardware detection and ease of installation. I've put together a 3 part video walkthrough of the installation process on one of my systems.
All in all, if you are building a system from scratch purpose built for MythTV, I highly recommend you give it a try.

It's heavily edited to keep things short and moving along quickly, so interstitial screens where user input isn't required have been cut. Also, the video footage was shot from one of the final pre-release versions, so there are a few minor differences from the final release. It ends up coving all of the critical screens in the installation process in user friendly screencast format.
