mythbuntu on newly installed mint 17 cinnamon

Has anyone managed to get mythtv working with mint 17. I have a media cased desktop that I built years ago especially to use as a media centre but have never been able to get myth tv working. I am trying again now that myth has been upgraded. I have a working clean install of mint 17 cinnamon and have installed mythbuntu as per instructions but cannot get past the frontend which goes into a continuous loop. I have installed mplayer and checked the dvb card which works fine on dvb-t for all channels so it is very frustrating. I found several users have the same problem but find the replies too technical. Can anyone help in simple language?

It would help if you gave context

For example a link to the problem/solution you describe ..

It is difficult to translate what one cannot see

Also, please 'self report' your previous post for deletion
And please note the edit button , bottom right of posts
Use that instead of posting a revised thread/post
