Because my system was dropping frames and changing audio speed recording
in MPEG4. The fact that I started Mythtv at 0.10 recording perfectly and
playing back perfectly in MPEG4, with a low 30% load roughly, then has
progressively deteriorated to 90-95% load with later builds was lost on the
list. One of the more "in the know" readers clubbed me over the head and
said something like " you fool, don't you know you're supposed to record in
RTJPEG and transcode it?" Whatever, at least my shows don't jump anymore.
And this is NOT a slow system. It's a AMD 2500+/512mb/7200rpmHD/KT400A
pretty snappy doing anything except myth.
