The HDHomeRun can't do much buffering internally, and streams the data via UDP without rate control to the recording host.

I was thinking about building a combo backend/frontend for a friend,
based on the HDHomeRun.  This commit make me nervous, however.  How
much of a problem is the data loss when the machine is loaded?
