As a work around, use mythrename.pl (from SVN contrib) to create human 
readable links that are linked into your MythVideo directory. Then you 
can setup MythVideo to use xine or mplayer (whichever works best for 
you) to play mpg files, and you can then watch recordings using Myth, 
but you don't use the internal Myth player.
