You could make the watch tv menu button exec xawtv in fullscreen mode.
The remote keys would probably even "just work". Myth would probably
need a "video source in use by external program" flag keyed from an
xml attribute on the exec tag, but even without it ought to be close.
Unrelated question - was there a bug fixed in the past week or to
whereby watching until a recording actually ended caused myth to
crash? I've got this behavior now.
My snap is from just after "Grants high load/double playback fix" or
whatever that comment is, and I don't see any fatal crash fixes since
then in the commit list...
