nevermind, it was the sql database access speed that was limited, apparently
running it on another computer over a 100bT network isn't fast enough for
whatever reason. I moved the database back to the local machine (which I'd
been meaning to do anyway) and all seems to be ok now...
I'm recording 2 HD, 1SD and playing back 1HD.
weeee! except for my strangely high CPU usage everything is working
Thanks! to all who have helped me with all my MythTV problems, getting my RAID
array setup, etc. I've documented much of my efforts in my latest rebuild to
the new mythtv.org wiki for anyone that wishes to learn from it.
