This is probably not a good idea. It might not be the problem you are attempting 
to solve, but it's almost certain to introduce others.

For example, any recordings you might make like this could have owner root, 
group root. When you finally get your system fixed, you might not be able to 
read these any more.

Both your back end and your front end should /probably/ be running as user 'mythtv'.
