I've been working on exactly this issue over the last couple of days.
The problem is that MythTV requires a V4L interface, which the cxm
driver doesn't supply.  I have code to add this functionality, and
intend to try it out in th next couple of days.  See

Let me know off-list if you want to try the patches.
