systemd doesn't really need a PID file to manage the service, can
mythtv be told not to create it? If it insists on creating it see if
you can move it to a subdirectory of /run (like /run/mythtv) that is
owned by mythtv.
Well PIDFile is recommended when using type forking. One option would
be to drop the "--daemon" option and move to type "simple".

Change the ownership of /var/log/mythtv.
Yup, I can add that to the spec file so it will be handled during install...
