As already told in forum thread, i've locally prepared some packages
for me-tv- which is the latest version upstream currently,
and it at least starts.

If somebody wants to try those out or wants to help with testing
in between, just contact me or ping me on IRC.

Otherwise suspending this until after the mga2 release.
