Why are you still watching live TV?  The whole idea behind a PVR (whether
it's MythTV, TiVo, or something else) is that you let it record stuff and
watch it at your convenience.  You don't have to be a slave to the network
scheduling goons anymore.  

(FWIW, channel-changing time is a little bit longer with MythTV than on a
TiVo, but both of them take a while when you're using a cable box.  I so
rarely fire up live TV, though, that it doesn't really matter.)
