I have been watching mythtv on the N800 for some time and I wrote a wiki
page about it on the MythTV wiki. There are several options for
transcoding, and I crop a tiny bit in order to watch TV full screen on
the N800. You need latest media player to do it.

Fast forward does not work great but use the back and forward arrow
keys, which skip about 2 minutes, works for the most part. There are
certainly issues with the player. The longer the show, the more likely
fastforwarding screws up. But I do not have any audio sync issues.
