mythcommflag and mythtranscode run at CPU nice level 17 when configured 
for medium CPU usage.

How about additionally setting the IO priority class to "idle" (see 
ionice manual)?

When I run for example mplex with nice 10 while recording with ivtv, I 
get occasional IOBOUND errors. When I also set the IO class to "idle", 
mplex does not cause IOBOUND errors. So, that should be good for MythTV 
jobs, too IMHO.
