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).
