This means the client app is not pulling data fast enough from the  
driver buffer and you could loose some frames.  This has recently  
been noted as a problem with MythTV as the client and research is  
being done to determine a fix.  For me, I just added another stick of  
memory, but a real fix is probably in the works in the next week or so.
