Interesting. Mabye I need to test this again. About 9 month ago I tried
XBMC eden with all available PVR addons and all available backends
(myth, tvheadend, vdr) and found neither combination satisfying. The
eyecandy is brilliant for sure, but after all efforts I crawled back to
myth FE/BE simply because it's the most fluent workflow when the main
use case is the PVR, and because it has less clicks on the remote to do
X, X being almost anything.

Having said that I must admit that about a month ago I have ditched
mythmusic for good in favor of squeezecenter running on my NAS and
squeezeplay next to the myth FE.
