If you are happy to compile yourself, then Trunk plus
itvhd2.diff should apply cleanly and work. I havn't tried recently but it should work on both 0.21-fixes and 0.22. There were two issues, one already fixed by the ffmpeg re-syncs, and this patch merely tells myth to overwrite the wrong streamID that ITV sends based on its PID.
If your not happy to roll your own, then lobby the mythbuntu guys to add it in as a patch, they run a few "unsupported" patches into their releases.
good luck :-)
