Out of curiosity, isn't is possible to install RatPoison or Fluxbox or
something and use that rather than Unity (or is Unity becoming too far
integrated)? I know they'll allow switching to GNOME 2 (and in 11.10,
will allow switching to GNOME 3, since GNOME 2 is being replaced with
the newer version), but since GNOME is a heavyweight desktop environment
(DE) that's not really appropriate for a dedicated MythTV box, I'd hope
you could similarly choose to use a lightweight window manager (WM),
Granted, possible does not necessarily mean easy, but I'd hope it would
be at least relatively straightforward.
