If you accept the defaults during the installation process, your hostname will end up as type_hostname_here. Rather than setting type_hostname_here as the default hostname, I recommend adding instructions to the page on which the user chooses the hostname, telling them to type their own hostname if they prefer to set one. The default hostname can be set to something sensible like 'mythtv' for users who either don't care or skip through the installer, accepting the defaults.
