Here is what I get without and then with mythfrontend (and watching a show):
# hdparm -tT /dev/sda
Timing cached reads: 1630 MB in 2.00 seconds = 815.19 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 226 MB in 3.00 seconds = 75.21 MB/sec
jmd1 shellscripts # hdparm -tT /dev/sda
Timing cached reads: 1104 MB in 2.00 seconds = 551.84 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 218 MB in 3.02 seconds = 72.18 MB/sec
I do have a dual 2.4GHz Opteron system with 4GB of memory though...
