I have an alternate approach for handling LiveTV on my TODO list.  The
high-level idea is to optionally have Myth schedule around LiveTV, if
possible, and only interrupt LiveTV if it can't do it.

I almost never use LiveTV myself, so it's pretty low priority.
Hoever, if someone else would like to try implementing it, contact me
directly and I'll coach you through it.  I don't think it would too
