Don't get too bummed. A while back somebody mentioned that they did
successfully get Myth working with the TV-out on a Pundit-R.

See this thread for pointers on how to do it:

Please post back if you do get it working. I suspect that there are a
number of people who are holding back on getting a Pundit-R because
they're not sure if they'll be able to get the TV-out working well in
Myth. It'd be great to hear from another person who got it working.

BTW, what processor do you have in your Pundit? I've thought about
getting one, but I'm concerned that if I got a fast processor (~ 2.8
GHz, possibly with hyperthreading), that the Pundit wouldn't be quite
so quiet anymore.
