I'll add few my thoughts, since I've been using both systems for quite some time now.
- I have MD connected to LCD TV and I see no really important reason why I would use mythtv instead of LCD's tuner for live tv. Commercials are on ever 5 minutes anyway, so you can do all your work in between (whatever you like to do: toilet, wife)... :-). If live TV over mythtv will hickup once in 3 hours, this is it. Standards for live TV devices are really high and users won't accept anything but 100% working solutions. Why risk with mythtv, all that buffering, when you can use already present tuners on tv...
- I mainly use mythtv only as PVR backend that records all stuff that is setup to do records. Now, with mytheb, I even don't need to run mythfrontend anymore
- I miss some usefull mythtv plugins more that just mythfrontend (mythnews, mythweather, mythphone, mythzoneminder...) and maybe some of newer ones I don't know. So I'd integrate those as external standalone applications, until lmce will have its own counterparts...
- I think that real integration of mythtv is to some extent pointless right now, when mythtv is developed to be more a standalone all-you-need application than useful backend that can be easily integrated into other systems....
Only my thoughts,
