	I dunno. Couple thoughts though ... Do you have -vo xv defined on your 
mplayer command string and no XV acceleration on the tv out server? Is 
mplayer not able to find -display localhost:1 (as opposed to :0)?

	MythDVD is just launching a system call with whatever you define as the 
command string. So, if you can sit in a terminal window on the LCD and get 
mplayer to display to the TV, just use exactly the same command line in 
MythDVD setup.
