I'm pretty sure someone at TransACT did get MythTV working with there TV 
but it was purely un-official and I think they used a VDSL card which is 
cheating as these are not off-shelf items
Also they where trailing a new STB with  a company called D1  which 
actually had a demo working but alas this never got off the ground.
 The  D1 had a box called the HMC http://www.hmc.com.au/hmc/index.html 
which was a modded MythTV box  so there is hope...
