I'm using monit and it work quite well.

To use monit with myth I edited the mythbackend init script on my fedora 
6 system located at /etc/rc.d/init.d/mythbackend and changed it to

daemon --user ${MBE_USER} ${MBE_LOCATION}${MBE_PROG} \
                          -d -l ${MBE_LOGFILE} ${MBE_OPTIONS} \
                          -p /var/run/mythbackend.pid

The only problem with Monit is if you recompile Mythbackend and replace 
your /etc/rc.d/init.d/mythbackend file then Monit will restart the 
Mythbackend ever minute.
