If Mythweather doesn't directly support a proxy, one easy way is to set up 
Squid to allow transparent proxying, and configure your MythTV box to 
redirect all port 80 traffic to Squid, IE:

iptables -t nat -I OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to-dest <squid-server>:3128

I do the redirection on my border firewall (not the myth box itself, like 
the above command would do), and all the MythTV stuff works fine through
