/etc/rc.local is a symlink to /etc/rc.d/rc.local on my boxes, created at 
install time... However, I'm not certain that the variable is actually set 
for anyone but root, using a true root shell (either by logging in as root or 
using 'su -'). Might be better to stash that in both /root/.bash_profile 
and /home/mythtv/.bash_profile instead.
