Ladies and gents if you have a look at the mythtv wiki user manual daily 
use section, it explains the xv issue
also if you run mythtv in a window, then you can use kde ksnapshot. 
Thats how I did all of the screen shots on the wiki

I then load them upto flickr which produces various sizes for me 
automagically and I then pick the size that best suites my needs.
