The live-tv buffer is set to the default of 5 gigs and there is plenty 
of space.

My systems are running Debian testing (Sarge).  The backends run as the 
user 'mythtv'.  The nice level in the /etc/init.d/mythtv-backend is set 
to 0.  I was considering raising the priority. 

I noticed when I ran top that ivtv runs at -10,  My mythfrontend runs as 
root, with this in mind I was considering raising mythbackend to -5 and 
seeing what happens.  Would that be worth a try?
