Or you could install XMing, and connect Via SSH with X forwarding.
That'll put mythtv-setup on your local desktop, rather than being

No enemies had ever taken Ankh-Morpock. Well *technically* they had,
quite often; the city welcomed free-spending barbarian invaders, but
somehow the puzzled raiders found, after a few days, that they didn't
own their horses any more, and within a couple of months they were just
another minority group with its own graffiti and food shops.
