Answering my own question for posterity.

Xscreensaver seems to work with Edgy Server and Myth .20-fixed.  I have not
tested it with a dvd yet, nor have I test pausing a recording and waiting
for the screensaver to kick in.  But watching a few recordings last night
and it didn't interfere.

I complied my own Myth from svn now the screensaver blanks during  
playback.  In the pre-compiled Ubuntu binaries this was not a  
problem.  Does anyone have a solution.

This thread:


suggests that there is a patch but does not provide it.  Currently  
I'm using gnome-screensaver.  The thread also suggest that I will  
have the same problem with xscreensaver.
