If you look closely at the error message you'll see that apache is looking
for a user in the realm 'MythTV'.  If you then look closely at your htdigest

htdigest -c myth_htdigest Myth mythtv

you'll see that the realm you specified on the command line is 'Myth' and
not 'MythTV'.

Try using MythTV instead of Myth in your htdigest command and see if that
works.  Or you could change the AuthName line in .htaccess from MythTV to
Myth.  Either way, make sure AuthName matches the realm you specify when
running htdigest.
