[mythtv-users] Can mythtv handle two dumb capture cards?

My system is an athlon XP 3000 w/ two bt878 capture cards.
I'm getting tons of "ran out of free AUDIO buffers :-(" errors on the
backend and tons of "Audio buffer overflow, audio data lost!" on the
frontend. About 1 in 10 recordings will have hiccups where the video
will have trouble spots -- "black holes" in the recording where the
recording can't rewind/fastforward past the trouble spot and the trouble
spot will cause video to pause, lose sync with the audio, or simply
crash the frontend.
Last time I posted about the errors, somebody said that it was because I
might be running a resource hogging operation like filldatabase or a
compile. Could simply running a second capture be causing the problems?
I'm getting very frustrated -- I have yet to see the system make it a
week without the backend crashing or 10 programs without the frontend
