First, you should do this:
Here was the thread I asked the same question, and where I got the best
answer (from Chris):
But to be honest, the only thing that worked for me was to stop any
background CPU hogging processes going on while recording. I was
transcoding shows, I wrote a script which does a killall -STOP transcode
at 7:59pm and killall -CONT transcode at 11:00pm (my main hours of
recording) so I can pause any transcoding I'm doing during prime-time.
