I'm guessing that that's where Tivo's MFS (media file system) comes
in. Tivo's harddrive has always been whisper-quiet for me, even when
recording 2 shows and playing one. For Myth with JFS I had to suspend
the harddrive in rubberbands in order to make it quiet enough for the
living room. Maybe what's needed is "mythtfs".
