There were great suggestions already - here are some more.
Assume at first that the problem is either related to the cable to the
TV or to power.
To test the power theory, try the long extension cord idea.
To test the "massive noise or current flowing to TV" theory, try
leaving the TV on, but don't connect the mythbox to it. In fact
try connecting the mythbox to the tv that *does* work but powered
up in the room that doesn't work (family room). If this is the
problem, is your TV grounded? Is there a 3rd wire in the
power cable and does it connect to a proper ground?
Maybe you can ground the svideo cable somehow at the TV end.
