It probably goes without saying but you will likley need sudo or run the 
command as root.

You can also just remove the unwanted plugins  *.so file from 
/usr/lib/mythtv/plugins/ Any that you remove will no longer show up in 
the MythTV menu's. The exact location will depend on what --prefix you 
used in configure.
