AFAIK the neutrino GUI is the only supported interface - I haven't noticed any chatter about Gemeni. DBox2 support has also largely stagnated with no active maintainer.

Your best option is probably to switch to a neutrino image and test. The actual MythTV configuration should be pretty simple - you just define a new video source and configure your channels (channel number and frequency should apparently be set to the exact DB channel name). I don't have a DB, so I can't really help much more.
