Just noticed whilst recording that the load on the CPU seams to be a
lot higher than I'm used to seeing.  I ran "top" and saw that
mythbackend was registering at ~ 25%-30% CPU%.  I'm sure that on my
machine I'm used to seeing it take ~5%.  In fact the reason I noticed
was because when the recording started, it significantly hit the
performance of the Mplayer playback I was watching at the time, and
I've never had that happen before.

All the recording profile settings are the same as they always where,
nothing else has changed other than me updating my copy from the CVS at
the weekend for the first time in about three weeks.  Has anything
major changed that might have caused this (I'm using the MPEG-4
recording setting btw) ?

I know this is a really, well, "up in the air" email, with no real
numbers or any kind of data to support my claim, so I appreachiate it's
far from being a useful email.  I just thought I'd better flag that I
think I'm seeing a 5-fold performance hit :(
