Not on my system.

But I guess it (may) depend on what capture cards you have.  I.e. if you
have a framegrabber and are using software compression (I am) then
mythbackend will have considerably more work to do that if you have a
hardward capture card.

After 19 days uptime, for me top reports:
  18:32.05 mysqld
 200:36.03 mythbackend
 174:44.48 mythfrontend
