I've got a MythTV backend running happily on a headless linux server, and I can control it via mythweb, including downloading and watching recorded programs in windows.

My next step is to watch live TV and recorded shows over the network. Is there any software that does this?

There's WinMyth and you can also try MythTvPlayer but their both still quite experimental so YMMV

I currently use MythTvPlayer on my netbook. It's simple but works great. – Will Jul 16 '09 at 1:00
Looks neither of those have seen any activity for over a year. – pgs Jul 16 '09 at 14:19

Well, I've got the mythbox script for XBMC working happily for recorded shows, but with some slight audio stuttering for live TV, which disappears if I rewind a few seconds.

Edit: Getting a lot closer and happier using a pre-built Windows frontend.

I just use XBMC with MythTV's UPnP support. Works well enough for playback, but don't have as much control as a proper Myth Frontend; and doesn't do commercial skipping.
