MythDroid (http://code.google.com/p/mythdroid/ - it's not on the market)
worked pretty well on my Motorola Droid phone in 0.21, but it doesn't work
with 0.22 though there's a note on the webpage saying changes to make it
work with 0.22 are minimal.  I'm not sure how often this is updated, I might
take a look at it myself at some point.

One other problem I had with it is that I have a menu to select recording
group show up as you enter watch recordings and a menu when you exit
recordings (as I usually delete right after watching something it's
convenient) and mythdroid didn't handle those correctly.  Other than that it
was good, even if for me in more of a "look what my new phone can do" kind
of way.

There's another one that is in the market but it didn't work at all.
