I found this seems to work after a bit of trying things:

Description=MythTV Test

ExecStart=echo $HOME


So it seems just don't set HOME environment, it is already done correctly
for the User=mythtv part. Maybe it wasn't always that way in the past.

I got this output:

Mar 01 11:44:42 mythtv64 systemd[1]: Started mythtv-test.service - MythTV Test.
Mar 01 11:44:42 mythtv64 echo[3332855]: /var/lib/mythtv
Mar 01 11:44:42 mythtv64 systemd[1]: mythtv-test.service: Deactivated successfully.
