[mythtv-users] Question about the LiveTV buffer location

I'm having a problem trying to find and change the location of where  
the livetv buffer is in mythtv.  I've done some searching and can't  
seem to find anything relevant.  I did see a reference to /var/cache/ 
mythtv/ but when watching livetv I am not seeing any files in this  

My concern is that this now shares the same location as the  
recordings directory.  Which for me, is on a remote file server.  I  
would much rather have the livetv caching done locally per mythtv box.

I remember there used to be an entry for it in the setup menu, but I  
no longer see this.  Is there a settings menu I'm missing or command  
line switch I can use to control where the livetv buffer is?  Does  
anyone have any ideas?
