There have been people using MythTV on Solaris and OpenSolaris in the 
past.  Considering OpenIndiana is forked from it, it shouldn't be too 
difficult to get MythTV compiled and running it.  If you're lucky, the 
existing ifdefs in the code will take care of everything and it will 
compile directly.  As mentioned, the only tuner you're likely to get 
working is the HDHomeRun.

If you're just looking for ZFS support, rather than a particular love 
for Solaris, FreeBSD 8.3 and 9.0 will support zpool v28 when released in 
the near term.
