Can you try playing back the mpg file generated through myth as well?

It sounds like the problem is the throughput of your system - it can't cope with streaming 
in both directions at once...  But that's a strange problem to have these days, the data 
flow shouldn't be that high.

Can you watch an old recording OK at the same time as recording a new show?

Can you see any errors in messages and/or is your load getting stupidly high?
