I doubt it is the disk. 0.25 dynamically resizes it's buffer up to
about 128 MB per recording vs the user specified buffer that defaulted
to 9.6MB in 0.24.

I was able to reproduce a problem with old firmware using udp
streaming, but with newer firmware employing rtp streaming I
can not reproduce the issue. I'm also not seeing the high CPU
usage reported. I see about 15% CPU usage with two recordings.

Can you take a look at this:
And tell me if increasing the rmem_max helps?
libmythhdhomerun tries to increase the socket buffer
on startup, but perhaps the rmem_max is set low on
your system? Mine is set to 131071000.
