Although there are lots of people having some trouble with stuttered 
recordings, I haven't seen any recent discussion on using renice on 
mythbackend lately.  Is this a good idea?  Is it likely to help reduce 
the occurrence of stuttered recordings?  Certainly it's a very simple 
tweak, compared to kernel patches.

But the kernel patches for low latency or preemptive interrupt handling 
may also have some benefits.  I wasn't sure, but it seemed to me like 
Axel Thimm's tweaked kernel (2.4.20-28_36.rh9.at is the one I'm using) 
may already have the low latency patch applied.  If not, would that help 
the stutter issue?  Would the preemptive patch help?
