My preferred way to watch LiveTV with Myth is to use Kodi with the Myth PVR

It works well with my UK satellite setup - the channel listing and schedule
has a nice visual 'feel' (now I have all the channel icons set up properly)
and [satellite] radio channels are also very nicely segregated into Kodi's
'radio' section.

OK the pause/skip performance isn't so great but for me that is less of an
issue with live than with recordings, for which Myth frontend is my choice.
