tntnet-2.2.1-2.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
tntnet-2.2.1-2.fc20 has been pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
The update to 2.2.1 in F-20 was an incompatible one; it updated the libtntnet soname from 11 to 12 and thus broke at least vdr-live.
As a rule of thumb, incompatible changes like that should not be made on released distro versions at all, and if they *need* to be done (for example if this security flaw could not have been fixed by backporting with reasonable effort), that has to be *announced* and dependencies be taken care of.
In this case looks like you tried to rebuild vdr-live, but ended up building it against the old tntnet (because you didn't file for a buildroot override for it) and shipping an unneeded vdr-live update which now needs to be redone ASAP against the new tntnet; otherwise people who have vdr-live installed will not receive the tntnet security update without manual intervention/hackery.
I believe all other tntnet dependent packages in F-20 (if any, haven't checked) are in a similar situation, not to mention anything locally built against the old libtntnet will be broken unless some other package blocked the update...
