No, but you could instead use another TV viewer for LiveTV, and add a
menu item for this to the main MythTV menu. LiveTV recordings made by
MythTV are usually automatically expired (deleted) after a specified
period, and scheduled recordings typically have higher priority than
LiveTV, so you should not have a problem with your disk filling up as
lower priority recordings will be expired to make room for new

Your A/V sync problems are not due to this, and are more likely due to
audio mixer issues, which are also the cause of your TV audio
continuing after exiting LiveTV. Is your TV card's audio output routed
through your sound card's line-in?
