copy library.xml from /usr/share/mythtv/themes/defaultmenu/library.xml to

add a stanza to the ~/.mythtv/library.xml file as follows with your editor:

                <description>Launch XBMC</description>
                <action>EXEC /usr/bin/xbmc</action>

Simply use the myth menuing system to go to XBMC. Exit XBMC and you are
back to myth.
