I don't know if you can use the noatime option with the CDFS file system
but it might help, it essentially reduces read/write head activity, and
the lack of this setting was causing choppy video with mythtv on my box.

I have the same problem. In addition, when playing from the cd in
mythmusic it will play for 3-5 seconds, pause, and play for another few
seconds and so on. I've been messing with dma settings (so far 0 and 1)
which seems to have no effect. I have also been messing with hdc boot
params. So far I've tried:
the first (which was the red hat default) didn't work at all. See my
previous mythmusic pleas.
the second got it sort of working but I still have these pauses.
let me know if you figure anything out.
