Kind of depends on your definition of stable. It can't seek (*AT ALL*)
within recordings without crashing. Commercial skipping is mostly (90% of
the time or better) completely broken.
A better idea is to run mythfrontend in a virtual machine. If you have a
fast enough CPU to hack it, it's quite nice!
Pretty much the only thing that works right now in mythTV player is live TV,
or playing an already-commercial-cut recording. Otherwise, kind of a waste
of time (IMHO).
