Sure, or:

Pico-Myth, Myth Lite, Dinky-Myth, Almost Myth, Semi-Myth, lots of possibilities.

Not familiar with the Roku, but I suspect it's a UPnP client/renderer. Myth has a UPnP server in it, though it's not 
perfect. You will lose many features that a full frontend has, but I guess that's why it's "micro".

If it turns out Roku is not a UPnP client, there are many devices in that price range that are. Networked Media Tanks like 
the Popcorn Hour, Myka, DSMs, lots of possibilities here also.
