I have been considering trying to schedule HD-PVR recordings in a VM with
another operating system and application to see if those recordings work
better. I hadn't thought about running the entire backend in the VM. I
wasn't sure it would. Or maybe it was just frontend that doesn't? I need to
go back and review the wiki again... In any case, it's interesting prospect.
I'm not sure if VMware or Virtualbox would be better. As I understand it,
Virtualbox is a paravirtualization solution and might be faster than VMware.
