I'm not exactly sure how MythTV handles DNS lookups, but I can
understand why SSH takes so long when your name resolution is down.
Most SSH servers are configured to reverse-lookup the clients that
connect to them for logging purposes.  If DNS is down, this process
will have to timeout before you receive the login prompt...

Perhaps Myth is attempting to do reverse-lookups as well?
