It does not. I did it on Windows XP and Win 7. If you don't have a
Windows machine, perhaps you could borrow a friends laptop. Jailbreaking
is a pain, but only takes a few minutes (when it finally works). Then
you can install the Plex client (which requires Plex Server to be
running somewhere) or XBMC.

XBMC runs on Linux, and will run from a Linux Live CD. I bought a Dell
Zino HD as a Home Theater PC, and I will probably run XBMC (and maybe
Plex) on Win7. But both run under Linux, and I might boot from a XBMC
Live CD and use that.

That's different from your MythTV requirements. You might be able to
integrate that into a solution like this, I don't really know.
