Bear in mind - mplayer reads directly off of the card to display.  Myth
does not.  It records to disk, then plays from the disk-stored copy.
That's the nature of a PVR.  So given that, it sounds like you need to
check if DMA is enabled on your hard drive(s).  See

As far as mplayer failing afterwards, that's just plain odd...
