I am about to order a couple of Pi2's but fear that getting the family to
adapt to Kodi may be difficult.

Just curious if you have tried using an external player that does have
OpenMax support?  It wouldn't be as handy as the native player due to lack
of commercial skipping and the smart ff/rw functions that I love in myth.,
but at least the UI could remain MythTV.
