I would like to set up my server to use the Mythbuntu repositories to keep MythTV more up to date than the version in the offical Ubuntu repositories.

I know I can install mythbuntu-control-centre on my server and access it from another computer using ssh -X, but I would like to avoid using the graphical interface entirely if I can.

So how do configure my server to use the Mythbuntu repos without using a GUI?

got a simple answer on irc, THANKS! apt-add-repository ppa:mythbuntu/0.26 – James Grossmann Oct 15 '12 at 17:14

The way we do the repos is by MythTV major version number, and the command to add it would be

apt-add-repository ppa:mythbuntu/<MythTV Version number>

So for 0.26 it would be

apt-add-repository ppa:mythbuntu/0.26

Note that any point releases (such as 0.26.1) would still be the 0.26 version.
