As it was just a case of

sudo apt install kodi kodi-pvr-mythtv

in standard Raspbian buster, I gave it a go on my RPi 3b, which talks to 
a v31 backend. Initial tests show the playback to be definitely 
watchable, much better than mythtv-light on the same RPi 3b. Skipping 
forwards and backwards is fluid.

I'll have to keep mythtv-light or another myth frontend around, to set 
up custom recordings and the like. Otherwise, for the moment, I am happy 
with it.
