I don't have an ATV, so I'm guessing:

1) Is there something like Console.app on an ATV?
If not, are there any hints in /var/log?
(like a crashreporter.log saying that it wrote to
mythfrontend.crash.log )

2) If it is possible to copy gdb over and run it in that,
it may give you more of an idea where it is crashing.

3) If gdb is too hard, how about ktrace?

4) How was this package built?
Was it an optimised build for a pentium4?
Does it need to be something lesser (pentiumpro)

5) If none of these helps, try sprinkling
some random extra debug throughout the code.
Start in libs/libmyth/mythcontext.cpp in
MythContext::Init() to narrow down what
it is calling, then in the method that is
crashing, and so on.
