Unless things have changed I doubt can run MythTV on a Pi. I haven't used it in several years but it's quite resource intensive. XMBC will play from a MythTV server, if you have one of those already running some place, but the Pi likely won't host a Myth server. Nevermind, just checked...
From Myth's web site, not going to happen any time soon... http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Rasberry_Pi
I should add in, in case you're unfamiliar with MythTV. It's a large application that combines functions you find in a DVR and media player, it bundles up your TiVO and XBMC, add in extras like MAME, newsreaders, photo browsers, etc. (like XBMC). There is a back-end application that handles the media server, recording of shows, etc, and the front-end which is for watching/listening to media. The back-end is just too much for the $35 Pi.
The same goes for Plex, RasPlex will display media, but will not act as a media server for you.
