Along those lines:

    Customizing mythfrontend menus-

If you simply copy main_settings.xml and mainmenu.xml out of 
/usr/share/mythtv/ into ~/.mythtv/, you can edit them to your heart's 
content without screwing up your main install, and the changes will 
survive an upgrade. This is probably the easiest way to remove unwanted 
content from the menus, rename anything to your liking, etc., without 
breaking any of the packages.

Even though these files are in /usr/local/share/mythtv on my system, it 
should work for you :)
