I believe the stuttering is from the stream size difference between
pre-multirec and trunk. The old way was to create dummy video and record it
along with the audio. Now the dummy video is being created on-demand by the
frontend - thus reducing the size of the stream. I believe the read size is
too large for such a small stream. However, adjusting it will affect video
streams. This may be where specialized storage groups comes in handy - one
for DVB audio only.
