I have watched a show just a few minutes behind as it was recording. My
backend was doing lot's of other tasks and I was seeing pixelization. I
could rewind, and see the exact same pixelization.
I shut down those other tasks, and the pixelization went away. I could
rewind back to the begining and see the pixelization, but once I caught up
to the point where I shut down the other processes, the corruption was gone.
I never see any errors in the mythbackend log indicating it could not write
to the disk fast enough, but it sure looks like that can happen. Maybe it
is not a problem with myth writing the file, but with myth reading from the
HD-2000 buffer fast enough? Maybe the HD-2000 driver needs a larger buffer?
