I have not seen it documented anywhere, but inside the mythbackend source,
if its run as root, a key thread that reads off the video device bumps
itself up to -10 priority. This may be a remnent, but it seems like a
good idea to give this thread the best chance. I might even play around
by taking it to a realtime process and see if it helps any.
Just my $0.02 worth...
