I did exactly that. and all the code, configuration files, remained.
I was even able to run the front and backend even though apt-get remove ran
obviously, apt-get in not a 100 % app. Or it's functionaly does not fully
match the documentation.
I also would have thought that apt-get should even delete the downloaded
modules but when I did a apt-get install mysttv-suite
there was nothing for it to download, system contained latest modules.
But it will remain a mystery, the system suffered a drive fail so I have to
reinstall every thing.
so I'll be back tomorrow with questions on how to get it to display live
video via the svid connection.

If you instaleld it using apt, you should remove with apt.
apt-get remove on a dependency does wonders.
