If it is a master backend, is this the package you're looking for?
I'm no packaging guru, but you may have to wait for the next change to
-fixes (so that the package is redistributed with a higher fixes

$ apt-cache policy mythtv-backend-master
500 http://ppa.launchpad.net karmic/main Packages
slave backend is without the -master.
