I think it works well enough for recorded shows. It's very responsive, once you
learn the buttons! If you haven' seen it, the ROKU remote has very limited buttons
and therefore the same button does several things with MythRoku and it's not 
intuitive. It may be better with another programmable remote, but I haven't
done that. Although LiveTV works, I don't use it often, too cumbersome. Also,
mythroku is just for live or recorded TV viewing, it doesn't have all the other
features that MythTV has.  But, ROKU has it's own image gallery, weather 
forecast, etc, so you can still do more with it.
As a small, perfectly quiet, linux-based, Hi-Def front-end, I would highly
recommend it.
A new version was released this month, but I haven't tried it yet.
