[mythtv] How to use mplayer for playing TV in mythTV.

I am trying to run TV functionality of MythTV using mplayer.

Presently it is being done by NuppelVideoPlayer. Different methods are
written in NuppelVideoPlayer(NVP) for controlling the various operations for
TV i.e. Play, Pause, Forward or Rewind.

I can initiate a separate process for playing TV using mplayer but the main
problem is how to control the forward and rewind operations in it (since
they need buffering of data which is done by NVP in mythTV).

Since mplayer for TV doesn't have these options and we are not using
NuppelVideoPlayer, so how can this be done. Any pointers in this regard will
be appreciated.
