From your download image I can tell you're running Mac OS X (not Linux)
but, for the list's sake, can you let us know how much memory you got in
both your 1.83 and 1.66 minis? Also, given your statement regarding
HDHomeRun - are you also using the Minis as a backend?

I suspect Myth is quite memory hungry and stuff is spooling off to VM. After that, however, both are quite able to keep up with anything I record. That includes a couple of 1080i channels that are using the full 19 Mbit stream. IOW, I see no difference between stuff playing live via the TV's ATSC receiver v. shows that I've recorded with Myth.
