This issue has been there for a while and I just figured out the root cause of it. Some myth themes are packaged as zip files. The theme chooser is able to download zip themes into into ~/mythtv/.mythtv/temp folder. When the theme chooser attempts to unzip the theme into the ~/mythtv/.mythttv/themes folder it fails due to the lack of unzip in the LinHES distribution. MythTv Frontend displays a failure notice that the theme could not be downloaded from the master backend. Installing unzip via the LinHES repository corrected the issue and allowed the theme to be installed.
