[mythtv-users] Problems in "Watchs TV"

Here is what I have found with a little trial and error. I cannot both
watch and record at the same time. It taps my system. I think part of
this may be due to Xorg problems with DRI, etc, because when I watch
top, I see no process hogging CPU. One thing I may try is getting a new
Video Card. I think I my get a PVR-350 too, since those seem pretty
cool. Anyway, I found that I could record without watching, then watch
when it was done. Depending on the quality of the recording, it took
anywhere from 30%-60% (not sure why so high there). Watching took at
least 30% more, so that finishes it off.
I feel like I understand a little more, but I am still unsure about my
setup. For instance, why was a 2 hour recording over 6 GB last night?
I'm a definite newb when it comes to MythTV, but I've used Linux long
enough to know how to fix most problems.
