[mythtv-users] Captive NTFS?

Has anybody used captive NTFS on drives use for capturing? I have been
playing with it, but the performance is not acceptable at all. My
playback and captures jump randomly, and sometimes are completely
uunwatchable. I am running Knoppymyth (latest). The box is a
2400XP/256/PVR250/Nvidia. I know there is more then enough horsepower
there. I realize capturing to NTFS is a stupid idea, as you should
always use a native FS for Write access, however the drive came out of
my windows machine, with a large collection of movies already on it.
Without buying a drive, and backing up all the movies to cdrom, I'm not
sure how else to tackle it. Any ideas? Any performance tips?
On completely un-related note, is there a site, faq, something that
explains creating modules for myth? Is it hard? I have a couple ideas
for modules. Foremost, I'd like to see the tight integration of torrents
into myth. I know there is a torrent module already, but i don't think
it address my desires. I'd really like to see a module like TVT-RSS for
Windows, that allows for the scheduling/monitoring of torrents from
sites like tvtorrents.. So I can say "If You can't record the O.C at
9pm, check Tvttorrents, and see if you can download it". As well, I'd
like to use .torrent for the distribution of my recordings. That way, I
could wake up in Toronto, and have downloaded last nights local news
from my box at home in Vancouver, all via bandwidth saving bit torrent.
