People are reporting good results again from XBMC 12 beta and various myth

If your backend is 0.24 then XBMC 11 works fine with the Mythbox frontend
addon. You get scheduling, commskip but not speedup (ie watch at 1.3x).

The standard mythbox does not work with 0.25 backend, but there is a fork
that does - https://github.com/mitchcapper/mythbox - but I think it needs
XBMC 12 (still in beta)

Also XBMC has now merged it's PVR branch, but i am yet to see this working
with mythtv (although have seen reports that it does)
