My guess is that there are quite few MythTV folks that are not aware of the
"delete-a-recording-while-recording" I/O bottleneck. They, and I, will be
most interested in the results you might observe regarding filesystem
stability and how fast XFS can delete a recording concurrent with recording
a program.
