Since MythTV is only actually reading from/writing to /pub/myth , root's 
owning /pub should be fine, as long as mythtv user has read and execute 
on /pub.  I have my MythTV stuff under /srv and /srv is owned by root.

(That it's using /pub/myth may not have been completely clear, though, 
because of what I trimmed out of the original post, so I can see how one 
could miss that.)
