It's not hard.  It's just the Myth might not be the right tool for this 
job.  The list archives have some discussions on using Myth with game 
consoles.  There's a situation where any delay is not acceptable

I think the suggested solution is to use xawtv and add a menu item to 
jump straight to it.
