I'm not using compiz, but there should be two options:
1/ Disable XVideo in MythTV, run "NO_XV="yes" mythfrontend"
This is slow (no HDTV), and some things aren't supported,
but you should get video.
2/ Get the latest and greatest Xgl. Xgl in SVN now has basic
XVideo emulation on some graphics chips. Intel is probably
supported, plus maybe nVidia and some ATI chips. I saw a
demo of this at SIGGRAPH, it was either RedHat or SuSE ppl
who were presenting.
