You are also going to get a performance hit with USB, especially as it is

MythTV would support anything that looks like a V4L
(Video4Linux) device. From the documentation for
those USBVision drivers, it appears that they do
provide a V$L interface.
(Rest of this not necessarily targetted to you, but
for anybody who wishes to use the XBox as a capture
Remember, the XBox is a 733MHz (I think, it's
somewhere around there) Pentium III with only 64MB of
RAM. I have serious doubts that you'd be able to run
the backend, frontend, mysql, etc. and be able to
capture a stream over USB given those memory
requirements. You'd be constantly hitting swap space
which would kill the performance.
Also, where would you store the recordings on an XBox?
You'd have to swap that hard drive out for a bigger
one (unless you went with NFS, which would probably
degrade the performance for capturing even further).
