I currently use the myth:// handler, as it works well for what I need
it for. It is missing commercial skip, however, but that's not too
much of an issue for me, as I'm using a "Classic" XBox, and using the
left/right buttons on the remote gives a 1:30 skip (give or take).

It's also missing the scheduling, but as I use MythWeb for that, it's
not a problem.

They are intending to (and are) build in a generic PVR system, so any
backend system can plug into XBMC and have full scheduling and
commercial skip and the like. But as it is, that's a BIG task, and
only partially done.
