You should be able to do everything that you want to do, and you
should be able to do it all directly from Myth.

See this page in the Myth docs for MythDVD:

I haven't used it, but my understanding is that you can put you DVD in
your Myth box's DVD drive, browse to the DVD section in the Myth
frontend, and select "Rip DVD" or something like that.

See also this section in Jarod's Myth guide:
